Kaduna State Government on Monday announced immediate imposition of 24-hour curfew on Sabon Garin Nassarawa-Tirkaniya area of Chikun LGA of the state over the reported killing of two persons.
Details on how and when the incident occurred were yet to be ascertained by our correspondent at the time of filing this report.
However, the decision to impose the 24hours curfew by government was allegedly due to breakdown of law and order in the area, following the killing of the two persons.
An official statement, signed by the State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, attributed the killing of the two to incident of urban violence.
“The Kaduna State Government hereby announces the immediate imposition of 24-hour curfew on Sabon Garin Nassarawa-Tirkaniya area of Chikun LGA.
