Damaturu — Yobe State government has further relaxed the curfew imposed on Damaturu by two hours. This was contained in a statement by Special Adviser to the state governor on Press Affairs and Information, Malam Abdullahi Bego.
"Public movement within Damaturu metropolis is now allowed between 7am and 6pm daily from today (yesterday) Monday June 25, 2012. Members of the general public are expected to remain in their homes from 6pm to7pm daily," he said.
Bego also said restriction on public movement in other parts of the state, except Potiskum town, remained from 10pm to 6pm daily, while movement in Potiskum town remained between 6pm and 6am daily.
The decision to further relax the curfew followed a meeting the state governor had with heads of law enforcement and security agencies in the state, saying the task of ensuring and maintaining security was not just for the security agents alone but for every law abiding citizen.
