JUST IN: Kaduna State Govt imposes curfew in parts of Chikun and Kaduna South LGAs
Following the massive looting and destruction of businesses across the federation after the #Endsars protests was hijacked by some notorious elements, state governors have been devising means of dousing the rising tension.
There have been massive cases of looting across the country by the masses.
However, to further avoid the break down of law and order, the Kaduna state government has declared curfew in some parts of the state. This was contained in a press statement issued by Samuel Aruwan, commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs.
He said, “The Kaduna State Government has declared 24 hour curfew in some communities in Kaduna South and Chikun Local Government areas, effective immediately.
“The areas are Barnawa, Kakuri, and Television in Kaduna South Local Government Area and Maraban Rido, Sabon Tasha, Narayi and Ungwan Romi of Chikun Local Government Area.
“Security agencies have been directed to arrest and prosecute any found violating the curfew and those responsible for breakdown of law and order. Security agencies have further been directed to effect the arrest and prosecution of anyone found looting and destroying properties.
“KDSG strongly condemns the concerted incitement being done on social media. The government appeals to all our communities to reject incitement and resist the attempt to create chaos and anarchy.”
