The Kaduna state security council has imposed a 24-hour curfew in Jema’a and Kaura local government areas of the state.
This is coming a day after 21 people were killed in renewed attacks in four different communities in the two local government areas and many houses burnt.
Announcing the curfew, Samuel Aruwan, spokesman to the state governor Nasir el-Rufai said the curfew was imposed to prevent further destruction of law and order.
The action became necessary to protect life and property and avoid the further breakdown of law and order in the two local government areas.
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.
