The Kaduna State government has relaxed the curfew it imposed on 21 LGAs.
This was contained in an issued statement signed by the state’s commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan.
According to the statement, the state government has accepted the recommendation of the security agencies for a significant relaxation of the curfew in 21 local government areas. It means in effect that as from today, residents can pursue their lawful business between 6am and 4pm daily.
The curfew hours it stated, will be from 4pm to 6am daily, in all local government areas except Chikun and Kaduna-South. This means the 24-hour curfew will continue in Kaduna-South and Chikun LGAs until further notice.
Residents of these two local government areas were advised to remain in their homes as efforts to normalise the situation continue.
Markets, offices and commercial centres, hotels and recreation centres in the two LGAs are to remain closed during the 24-hour curfew. Social and mass gatherings are also prohibited in these areas until further notice. As essential services, hospitals and medical facilities are expected to open and offer services during this period.
