After Sunday’s violence in Jema’a and Kaura local government areas of Southern part of the state, the Kaduna State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew.
In a statement issued by the Commissioner, Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, he said this became necessary in order to restore law and order in those affected areas.
The statement said the measure will assist security agencies to stabilise the situation in the areas, save lives and property and enable the restoration of law and order.
Aruwan said security agencies have full authorisation 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.
“Government condemns the violence and all acts of lawlessness that have occurred in the area.,” he said.
