Kaduna State Government has extended the 24-hour curfew earlier imposed in some communities in Chikun and Kaduna South Local Government Areas to all the 23 Local Government Areas in the state.
In a statement to update the earlier curfew imposed on parts of two local government areas, the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, again on Saturday, October 24, 2020 said that the measure was taken “to help safeguard our communities, protect lives and property, and contain criminal elements who are looting public and private assets.”
Aruwan stated further that the extension of the 24-hour curfew to all the 23 local government areas of the state was with immediate effect.
“Kaduna State Government will keep the situation under review, and regrets the inconvenience it may cause law-abiding citizens.
“The state government wishes to appeal to all residents of the state to kindly bear with the government as it takes necessary action to maintain law and order, and to protect the right of citizens to live in peace,” the Commissioner said.
