Gov El-Rufai Relaxes 24-Hour Curfew In Zangon Kataf, Kauru LGAs

1 Mins read

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has relaxed the 24-hour curfew imposed on Zangon Kataf and Kauru Local Government Areas of the state. The curfew has now been relaxed from 6pm to 6am effective Saturday, 22nd August, 2020.

Recall that the two local governments have been under a 24-hour curfew following an unrest in Zangon Kataf as a result of alleged killing of a young farmer on his farmland on 11th June, 2020.

The state Commissioner for Internal Security & Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, in a statement issued in Kaduna on Saturday, said as efforts to diminish perils to communities and promote peace continue, the Kaduna State Government has accepted the recommendation to relax the curfew in Kauru and Zangon-Kataf LGAs. Curfew hours will now be from 6pm to 6am, effective Saturday, August 22, 2020.

The statement says security agencies have advised the Kaduna State Government of concerns about the persisting danger of attacks and reprisals, especially in Zangon-Kataf Local Government Area.

“However, the security assessments also acknowledged that there are promising signs of serious efforts at rapprochement between the Atyap, Hausa and Fulani communities of Zangon-Kataf Local Government Area,” the statement observed.

It said the decision completes the relaxation of the 24-hour curfew imposed from 11 June, 2020 to help contain security challenges initially in Kauru and Zangon-Kataf but later extended to Kaura and Jema’a Local Government Areas.
