Abuja - The army has reviewed the curfew imposed on Maiduguri,the capital of troubled Borno State.
The Deputy Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman, said the curfew hours on the town was now 7pm to 6am.
The curfew formerly on the town was from 9pm to 6am daily and the additional two hours was handed down due to the deteriorating security situation in the state, especially following explosions in attacks on some towns with flags of the insurgency group hoisted and declaration of caliphate.
"All must comply with the directive and that anyone found flouting this directive will be arrested and prosecuted," Usman said.
Borno is one of three states under emergency rule following incidents of terrorism over the months.
Adamawa and Yobe are also under such rule.
Thousands have died in the states and the rest of the country owing to terror blamed on the Boko Haram sect. - CAJ News
