The Kaduna State government has relaxed the night time curfew in Kaduna metropolis and environs with immediate effect.
Samuel Aruwan, spokesperson of Governor Nasir El-Rufai, in a statement said residents are henceforth free to move and pursue their legitimate activities every day, until the hours between 10pm and 5am.
However, the security review advised that curfew hours in Kachia local government area will remain from 5pm to 6am, until further notice.
The statement said: “A meeting of the core security team today reviewed the security situation, and advised the gov-ernment that a relaxation of the curfew hours is prudent. The government has therefore accepted the recommenda-tion to shift the start of curfew time to 10pm. This acknowledges welcome improvements in the overall situation, and will also enable a resurgence of the night economy.”
“The security agencies will continue to strictly enforce the declared curfew hours.
“The Kaduna State government commends residents for the growing atmosphere of calm, and appeals for further ef-forts and unceasing vigilance in the cause of peace.”
Recall that the Kasuwan Magani crisis which led to the death of 55 persons spread to Kaduna town and environs killing at least 23 persons with properties worth millions destroyed.
President Muhammadu Buhari, who visited Kaduna on a condolence visit on Tuesday vowed to bring the perpetrators to face the full wrath of the law.
