Kaduna State Govt relaxes curfew in Jema’a and Kaura LGAs

The Deputy Governor visits Kagoro

The Kaduna State Government has relaxed the 24-hour curfew imposed on Kaura and Jema’a Local Government Areas of the state.

Recall that the government imposed a 24 hours curfew on the two LGAs after bandits attacked the Kagoro community last Sunday, killing 34 locals and two military personnel. They also burnt several houses.

The State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who disclosed the latest development in a statement on Thursday, March 24, said that the decision to relax the curfew hours from 6 pm to 6 am was reached after a review of the security situation presented by security agencies at a peace engagement.

“By this development, there will be movement in the areas from 6 am to 6 pm, while the curfew is to be observed from 6 pm to 6 am daily,” he stated.

“The government wishes to reiterate that the initial declaration of the 24-hour curfew was to avert escalation of violence. Monitoring of the situation will continue. Should security assessments necessitate it, the government will not hesitate to revert to a 24-hour curfew.”
