Kaduna govt relaxes 24-hour curfew

The Kaduna State Government on Tuesday relaxed the 24-hour curfew imposed on the state following the return of peace and order in the state.
This was contained in a statement issued and signed by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Rueben Buhari.

The Kaduna State governor, Patrick Yakowa

According to the statement, the curfew will now take effect from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. in the four metropolitan local government areas.
The areas are: Kaduna North, Kaduna South, Igabi and Chikun Local Government Areas.

The State Government said that the curfew in the 19 other Local Government Areas would start from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

“In view of the improved peaceful coexistence witnessed in Kaduna, the State Security Council has further relaxed the curfew hours.

“Government commends the entire people of Kaduna State over the return of normalcy and urged them to continue to be law abiding,’’ it stated.

The 24-hour curfew was imposed on the state following June 17 attacks on three churches in Zaria and Kaduna.

Although the curfew was relaxed on June 19, it was reinstated following the eruption of fresh violence in the metropolis.
