Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has imposed a 24-hour dusk-to-dawn curfew on Kajure Local Government Area over the incessant killings in the state.
Disclosing this on Friday via his twitter handle @samuelaruwan was the Senior Special Assistant Media and Publicity (Spokesperson) to the governor, Samuel Aruwan, who stated that the curfew in the entire Kajuru LGA was with immediate effect.
“Following events in Kasuwan Magani, the dusk to dawn curfew that has been in place in Kajuru LGA had been extended to 24-hours in the entire local government area. The 24-hour curfew in the entire Kajuru LGA is with immediate effect, and will be enforced until further notice,” Mr Aruwan wrote.
Kajuru and other parts of Southern Kaduna have witnessed attacks and retaliatory attacks by various communities.
The conflict, which usually takes ethnic and religious dimensions, has led to the death of scores of people in the past few months.
