The Kaduna State Government has relaxed the 24-hour curfew imposed on Kaura and Jema’a local government areas over a breakdown of law and order in the area.

The decision to relax the curfew’s hours was reached after a review of the security situation presented by security agencies at a peace engagement.

The state’s Commissioner of Internal Security and Homes Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, disclosed this in a statement issued on Thursday.

According to him, by this development, there will be movement in the areas from 6am to 6pm, while the curfew is to be observed from 6pm to 6am daily.

“The government wishes to reiterate that the initial declaration of the 24-hour curfew was to avert the escalation of violence.

“Monitoring of the situation will continue.

“Should security assessments necessitate it, the government will not hesitate to revert to a 24-hour curfew,” he said.
