The Kaduna state government has imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on the troubled Kajuru local government area.
The government said this in a statement by Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s spokesperson, Samuel Aruwan.
Aruwan said the curfew would be from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily until further notice
The government directed security agencies to ensure strict enforcement of the curfew.
It appealed to residents in the affected areas to bear with it, the inconveniences the curfew might cause and urged them to cooperate with the security agencies on the directive.
It would be recalled that the Kaduna state police command on Monday said no fewer than 16 persons were killed by gunmen at Barde village under Maro in Kajuru local government area of the state.
The command’s public relations officer, Yakubu Sabo, confirmed this to news men in Kaduna.
