The decision to relax the curfew was reached after a review of the security situation presented by security agencies at a peace engagement.
The 24-hour curfew imposed on Kaura and Jema’a Local Government Areas of Kaduna state has been relaxed by the government.
Recall that the government imposed a 24 hours curfew on the two LGAs after bandits attacked 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 6am to 6pm, while the curfew is to be observed from 6pm to 6am 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.”
