The Kaduna State Government has, on Thursday, relaxed the 24-hour curfew imposed on Jema’a and Kaura local government areas following the attacks in the areas two weeks ago.

The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said in a statement that following a review, the military and the police carrying out internal security operations in southern Kaduna have recommended that the curfew in Jema’a and Kaura local government areas be reduced.

“Accordingly, the curfew hours in Jema’a and Kaura LGAs will be from 6pm to 6am daily.”

However, the 24-hour curfew in Kauru and Zangon Kataf local government areas will be sustained, while close monitoring of the security situation in the two local government areas will continued.

The 24-hour curfew was imposed on Jema’a and Kaura following attacks in Zikpak Chiefdom on 24th July.

On the other hand, the curfew in Kauru and Zangon Kataf LGAs has entered the 9th week in following the Southern Kaduna crisis which started from the areas.

Though, security personnel have arrested some suspects who were said to be involved in the attacks, situation in the southern part of the state is still delicate.

The military disclosed on Thursday that it’s sending in special forces to all the crisis areas in Southern Kaduna to maintain peace.

It also called on the public to provide security agencies with credible information.
