The 24 hour curfew imposed on three local government areas in Southern Kaduna following killings in the area has been relaxed by the State government.
The curfew is relaxed only in two local government areas of Jema’a and Zangon Kataf, leaving Kaura local government still under the 24 hour curfew.
The decision to relaxed the curfew was taken by the Kaduna State Security Council.
A statement by the spokesman of Governor Nasir El-Rufai, Samuel Aruwan Samuel said “the curfew in Jema’a and Zangon Kataf local government areas is now for twelve hours daily, from 6pm to 6am. Medical and health personnel carrying out essential services are exempted from the curfew which was imposed in December 2016.“
