The Kaduna State Government has announced the total removal of the curfew imposed on June 17, following a significant improvement of the security situation in the state.

A statement signed by Reuben Buhari, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media, said the government took the decision at the State Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.

“The Security Council met today (Wednesday) and after extensive deliberation, decided to completely remove the curfew hours currently in place with effect from today,” he said.

Mr. Buhari added that the movement restriction on motorcycle operators between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. is still in force.

He advised the people of the state to be law-abiding and cooperate with the security personnel to ensure that peace and tranquillity prevail.
