A statement signed by the Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, said “Security agencies have full authorization to enforce the curfew. Government appeals to all residents of Jema’a and Kaura local government areas to cooperate with the security agencies in the urgent task of restoring peace and upholding law and order”
The government further condemned the violence and all acts of lawlessness that have occurred in the two local governments. The curfew followed the recent clashes that took place in the two communities.
