The Bauchi State Government has banned all gatherings in whatever form, and religious processions, in the state.
The government made this known in a statement signed by the secretary to the state government, Bello Shehu, on Wednesday in Bauchi.
“It has become imperative to impose a ban on all public gatherings and processions in the state with immediate effect.
“ All security agencies are hereby directed to ensure strict compliance with the directive,” Mr. Bello said.
The government has not given reason for the decision.
Bauchi is the latest to impose such ban, weeks after Kaduna, Kebbi, Sokoto Katsina and Kano states banned processions in their states.
