The Kaduna State Security Council has imposed a 24-hour curfew in Jema’a and Kaura Local Government Areas of Kaduna State with immediate effect.

A statement issued on Tuesday in Kaduna by Samuel Aruwan, Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, said the curfew on the affected LGAs of the troubled Southern Kaduna became necessary to protect life and property and avoid the further breakdown of law and order.

He said that all security agencies on a special operation in the two local government areas have been directed to ensure strict compliance.

“Only essential workers and those on humanitarian services are allowed movement after due clearance by security agencies,” Mr Aruwan added.
