KADUNA, North-West, Nigeria – The Kaduna State Government has extended all over the state the 24-hour curfew earlier imposed in some communities in Chikun and Kaduna South LGAs.

“The extension of the 24-hour curfew to all the 23 local government areas of the state is effective immediately.
“KDSG will keep the situation under review and regrets the inconvenience it may cause to law-abiding citizens.
“The state government wishes to appeal to all residents of the state to kindly bear with the government as it takes necessary action to maintain law and order, and to protect the right of citizens to live in peace,” the statement concludes.
