Following the persistent attacks in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau, where people were reportedly killed, Governor Simon Lalong has declared a dusk to dawn curfew in the area.
The News Agency of Nigeria reported that Mr Rufus Bature, Secretary to Government, said this in Jos on Wednesday.
Bature said Lalong approved the curfew in consultation with security agencies, adding that the curfew would be from 6 p.m to 6a.m daily.
The governor’s aide called on the affected communities to embrace peace, assuring that efforts were on to unravel the immediate and remote causes of the problem.
“Consequently, security agencies in area have been mandated to enforce the curfew.
“Law abiding citizens are advised go about their lawful business,’’ he said.
