Borno restrictions relaxed for Governor's inauguration

28 May 2015, 20:54

Abuja - The Borno State Government has relaxed the curfew in the state to enable free movement during the inauguration of Governor Kashim Shettima.

The curfew between 7pm (local time) and 6am daily due to the insurgency crisis in the state has been relaxed to between 10pm and 6am throughout the period of the inauguration weekend.

The State Commissioner for Information Dr Mohammed Bulama, who is also the Chairman of the Publicity Sub-committee of the inauguration, disclosed the development in Maiduguri, the terror-prone state.

He said the latest review would be enforced from Thursday to Saturday.

Bulama said the commissioner noted that this will enable citizens of the state celebrate the inauguration ceremony of Governor Shettima across the state.

He assured that necessary security measures had been put in place to ensure the safety of lives and property of the citizenry during the celebration.

He also called on the people to be calm and law abiding while celebrating as the security agents will not condone any act of indiscipline or public disturbance.

Shettima will be sworn-in for a second-term on Friday.

The ceremony will coincide with the main event scheduled for Abuja where Muhammadu Buhari will be inaugurated as the country’s next democratically-elected President.
