The Kaduna State Government on Saturday relaxed the 24-hour curfew in Zangon-Kataf Local Government Area to between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., according to a statement.
The statement, signed by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Mr Samuel Aruwan, noted that “the curfew is now in effect only between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. every day.”
The state government imposed the curfew in Jema’a, Zangon-Kataf and Kaura Local government areas in December 2016.
Aruwan stated that the decision was taken by the Kaduna State Security Council after reviewing the situation in Zangon-Kataf Local Government Area.
He noted that the Council, in taking the decision, said it was imperative that everyone in the area discharged his or her duties to uphold peace.
The council also urged the people to firmly resist those who might wish to sabotage the gains being made in restoring normalcy in the area.
