Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

The Kaduna State government has declared a 24-hour curfew in Jema’a and Kaura local government areas of the state with immediate effect.

Commissioner, Internal Security and Home Affairs of the state,

Samuel Aruwan, said the decision was taken following advice from security agencies.

He made this known in a statement he signed and issues on Monday, March 21.

according to him, “This is to assist the security agencies to stabilize the situation in the areas, save lives and property and enable the restoration of law and order.”

He said that the “security agencies have full authorization to enforce the curfew.

“Government appeals to all residents of Jema’a and Kaura local government areas to cooperate with the security agencies in the urgent task of restoring peace and upholding law and order.”

He, however, said the “Government condemns the violence and all acts of lawlessness that have occurred in the area,” adding that “further updates will be issued as necessary.”

It will be recalled that activities of bandits, terrorists, herdsmen and inter-communal killings have yet to abate in most parts of the state, especially the southern part.
