The Kaduna State government has relaxed the 24-hour curfew imposed on the state capital and environs to maintain peace following the murder of the paramount ruler of Adara, Dr Maiwada Galadima, by his abductors.
In a short announcement by governor Nasir el-Rufai’s spokesman, Samuel Aruwan, on Sunday he said, “The Kaduna State government has relaxed the curfew in Kaduna metropolis and environs. Residents can move around today till 5pm. From tomorrow, Monday, 29 October, residents are free to move from 6am to 5pm. Markets and banks are expected to reopen, night time curfew remains.”
Recall that, Kaduna State government had reinstated a 24-hour curfew on Kaduna metropolis and environs, Kasuwan Magani, Kajuru, Kateri and Kachia since last Friday.
According to the statement, it was a necessary step to help maintain peace as: “we mourn the death of HRH Agom Adara, who we lost in the early hours of today to the criminals who abducted him last week”.
However, the Kaduna State Security Council had revealed on Saturday that, 32 persons were arrested for involvement in the fresh disturbances, saying they will be investigated and prosecuted.
