Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has lifted the curfew imposed on Sokoto metropolis with immediate effect.

“Acting on enabling powers under section 176 (2) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,
section 1, 2 and 4 of the Public Order Act and section 15 of Sokoto State Peace Preservation Law, I hereby lift the curfew,” he said

The Governor however, urged the general public to be law abiding and remain peaceful at all times.

He stressed the need for peaceful co-existence amongst the people in the State.

He further banned all forms of processions in the State until further notice.

Governor Tambuwal thanked people in the State for their understanding in complying with the curfew.
