Mr. Aruwan said that the curfew also affects some communities in nearby Chikun Local Government Area.
“Security assessments have necessitated the imposition of a dusk to dawn curfew in all parts of Kajuru Local Government Area, effective from today, Wednesday, 13th March, 2019. The dusk to dawn curfew is also extended to Kujama and Maraban Rido, which are in Chikun Local Government.”
The curfew in the affected areas, will be in effect from 6pm to 6am, daily, until further notice, he added.
“Security Agencies have been directed to ensure strict enforcement of the curfew. The Kaduna State Government appeals to all residents and communities in the affected areas, to bear the inconvenience of the curfew, and cooperate with the Security Agencies”, Aruwan said.
