The Kaduna State Government has announced the immediate imposition of a 24-hour curfew on Sabon Garin Nassarawa-Tirkaniya area of Chikun Local Government Area of the state.
The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, announced this development on Monday.
Aruwan, in a statement issued in Kaduna on Monday, said the measure was taken to check the breakdown of law and order.
He said: “This decision was reached following a breakdown of law and order which led to the killing of two citizens in an incident of urban gang violence.
“Security agencies have been directed to enforce the curfew in the said location to restore order as investigations proceed.
“Citizens are therefore urged to strictly observe the curfew in this location, which takes effect immediately.”
The Commissioner said further updates would be communicated accordingly.
