Bama Explosion: Borno Govt Imposes Dusk Till Dawn Curfew
Few hours after four people were killed in a suicide attack on a mosque in Bama Local Government Area of Borno State, the state government has announced a dusk-to-dawn curfew in the area.
Chairman Bama Local Government, Ba’shehu Gulumba told Channels Television that a dusk till dawn curfew has been imposed while other measures are being put in place to ensure safety of returnees.
He explained that the attack would however not deter relocation of displaced persons.
Sunday morning’s attack on Bama is the first since liberation of the community from boko haram in 2015.
The attack followed the successful return and settling of 4,500 households who were formerly displaced by Boko Haram insurgency.
The Chairman of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency, Yabawa Kolo also confirmed to Channels Television that the victims of attack are part of the first batch of returnees.
