Taraba declares indefinite curfew over looting

The Taraba State Government has imposed an indefinite curfew in the state following the invasion of government warehouses by hoodlums on Saturday.

This was contained in a statement by Musleem Aruwa, the Senior Special Assistant on New Media to the Deputy Governor, Haruna Manu, in Jalingo.

Manu expressed worry that some hoodlums invaded government warehouses containing palliatives and carted away items meant for distribution to members of the public.

The media aide said, “Government has carefully reviewed developments in the last 24 hours and decided to extend the curfew to safeguard lives and properties.

“All law-abiding citizens are advised to stay at home and allow security agencies who are under strict instructions to enforce the curfew and equally protect innocent citizens.

“However, the government is not unaware of people on essential duties, who are similarly requested to carry with them official identification cards to show security operatives on demand to avoid embarrassment.
