After fresh violence broke out in some parts of the local government recently, the Kaduna State government has directed a 24-hour curfew on Kajuru.
A spokesman to the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, Samuel Aruwan, made the imposition of the curfew known in a statement he released on his Facebook page this morning.
“Following events in Kasuwan Magani, the dusk to dawn curfew that has been in place in Kajuru LGA had been extended to 24-hours in the entire local government area. The 24-hour curfew in the entire Kajuru LGA is with immediate effect, and will be enforced until further notice,” Aruwan wrote.
Recall that two weeks ago, armed men suspected to be kidnappers, stormed the Kajuru Resort Center and killed two persons, a Nigerian, Mathew Oguche, and his British Humanitarian worker girlfriend, Faye Mooney.
