Kaduna boils again as govt re-imposes 24-hr curfew

The Kaduna state government has re-imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on the troubled state. The action may not be unconnected with violence that broke out in Tundun Wada, Rigasa, Gonin Gora, Dirkaniyya and Panteka areas of the state.

In a press statement by the media adviser to Governor Ibrahim Yakowa, Mr Reuben Buhari reads: “In view of certain new Security challenges that came up today, and based on the need for the state government to continue with its responsibility of safeguarding the lives and properties of it citizens, the state government is hereby re- imposing a 24 hours curfew in all parts of the state.

“This curfew covers all the 23 LGs of the state. As unpalatable as this decision is, the state government is doing it in the best interest of the state .  Consequently, everybody is strongly advised to go back home now, while security agencies continue with the task of ensuring total peace in the state”, the statement read.
