Some residents of Rigasa community in Kaduna, said on Tuesday, that life has become extremely
difficult for them since the imposition of a 24-hour curfew on the city by the Kaduna State Government.
The state government imposed the curfew on Sunday following violent clashes in the state capital.
Some of the residents said in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria that they were finding it difficult to survive as they have run out of foodstuffs.
Even local shop owners said they have run out of essential commodities including sachet water as markets remained shut.
A provision store owner, Sulaiman Dahir, stated that he had sold all the rice, sachet water and recharge cards due to high demand, but was unable to restock due to the curfew.
He noted that people who usually buy and sell food items and other essential commodities at wholesale from the main market now buy from retailers in their communities.
Khadija Al-Hassan, a patent medicine store owner, also said she had run out of basic drugs and had to turn back customers patronising her.
Even though the curfew is for our own good, for peace to reign, the government should endeavour to review the curfew in such a way that people can go out for their businesses for some hours , she said.
