Kaduna State government relaxes its night curfew.

The Kaduna State Government has relaxed the night-time curfew in Kaduna metropolis and environs.

Samuel Aruwan, who is the Senior Special Assistant to the Govenor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, said residents are free to move and pursue legitimate activities between 10pm and 5am.

He said the decision was arrived at after a meeting of the core security team which reviewed the security situation, and advised the government that a relaxation of the curfew hours is prudent.

“The government has therefore accepted the recommendation to shift the start of curfew time to 10pm. This acknowledges welcome improvements in the overall situation, and will also enable a resurgence of the night economy,” he said.

Aruwan said the security council however advised that curfew hours in Kachia local government area will remain from 5pm to 6am, until further notice.

“The security agencies will continue to strictly enforce the declared curfew hours.”

“The Kaduna State Government commends residents for the growing atmosphere of calm, and appeals for further efforts and unceasing vigilance in the cause of peace.”
