Kaduna relaxes curfew

25 June 2012, 14:20

Kaduna - The Kaduna State Government on Monday relaxed the 24-hour curfew imposed on the state following a gradual return of peace to the state.

A statement signed by the Special Assistant, Media, to the Governor, Mr Rueben Buhari, said the curfew was relaxed by four hours on Monday to allow movement of people between noon and  4 p.m.

It also said that movement would be allowed between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. in Kaduna South, Kaduna North, Igabi and Chikun local government areas as from Tuesday.

Residents of the remaining 19 local government areas, according to the statement, are allowed to move around between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The 24-hour curfew was imposed on the state following bomb attacks on three churches, ECWA Church, Wusasa, Zaria;  CKC, Sabon-Gari, Zaria and the Shalom Church of God Trikania, Kaduna.

Although the curfew was initially relaxed on June 18, it was reinstated the following day due to fresh violence in the state capital.
