Kaduna — Kaduna State government yesterday lifted the curfew it imposed on the state after the recent attacks on churches in Zaria and Kaduna, as well as the reprisals that followed leading to loss of many lives and property.
The state, however, maintained the decision of restricting movement of commercial motorcyclists popularly known as Achaba.
It would be recalled that the state government had imposed a 24-hour curfew after the crisis, which was subsequently reviewed about three times.
The decision to lift the curfew, according to the state governor's special assistant on media and publicity, Reuben Buhari, was reached after the state Security Council meeting.
"In view of improved security situation in Kaduna State, the security council met today (yesterday) and after extensive deliberation decided to completely remove the curfew hours currently in place with effect from today (yesterday).
"Achaba operators in the state are to, however, adhere strictly to the restriction on their movement which starts by 9 pm and ends by 6 am. Meanwhile, all are requested to remain law abiding and cooperate with security personnel," Buhari said.
