24 Hour Curfew Imposed in Kaduna

The Jema’a Local Government of Kaduna State has imposed 24-hour curfew on Kafanchan and its environs to forestall breakdown of law and order.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that curfew was imposed after a peaceful protest by youths in Kafanchan against killings in Southern Kaduna.

Southern Kaduna has over time witnessed persistent killings with the state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, recently revealing that he paid some Fulani herdsmen to forestall peace, a disclosure that resulted in heavy criticisms.

The curfew was imposed by the chairman of Jema’a local government area in state, Dr Bege Katuka. Kafanchan, the commercial nerve-centre of southern Kaduna, is the headquarters of Jema’a local government area.
