Kaduna State government, yesterday, lifted the curfew in Kaduna metropolis and environs, with immediate effect.

The nighttime curfew, which had subsisted in the city, since  October 31, 2018 has now been removed.

In a statement by Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s spokesperson, Samuel Aruwan, said that residents are now free to go about their legitimate business at anytime of the day.

The statement, however, said that a security review has determined that curfew hours be retained in Kujama, Kasuwan Magani and Kachia towns in the state.

“Nighttime curfew in Kachia is from 10pm to 6am. For Kasuwan Magani and Kujama the curfew remains from 5pm to 6am.

The Kaduna State Security Council commends residents for upholding the peace, and urges residents to continue to cooperate with the security agencies,” the statement reads.

Recall that, Kaduna town and some parts of the state witnessed violent skirmishes in which many were reportedly killed, and properties destroyed.
