Governor Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa
of Kaduna State yesterday imposed a 24-hour curfew on the whole state following the violence that trailed the bombing of Shallom Church in Trikania in Chikun, Sabon Gari and Zaria Local Government Areas of the state.
The governor in a state-wide broadcast said the curfew became necessary to stop the violence. “We woke up this morning to the unfortunate blast in Zaria and Kaduna. As a result, 24 hours curfew has been imposed on the whole state.
“Everything is being done to bring the situation to a stop by denying those bent on causing anarchy in the state the opportunity to celebrate their objectives. The government regrets this decisive decision, but it has been done in the interest of the state in order to avoid the loss of lives and property in the state again,” he said.Daily Trust
