Maidiguri Reviews Curfew

Yesterday, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, Borno State Governor  reviewed the dusk to dawn curfew imposed on the state capital, Maiduguri, on December 2, 2013 following Boko Haram attack on military and security formations. The curfew, which was formerly from 7p.m. to 6a.m., has now been reduced by two hours, from 9p.m. to 6a.m.

Alhaji Isa Umar Gusau, Shettima’s spokesman, in a statement on the review of the curfew, urged all citizens to continually cooperate with the security agencies and abide by the provisions of the curfew until further notice.

“Individuals and vehicles duly authorised on essential services such as medical workers, rescue fire fighters, ambulances and media personnel on duty are exempted from the curfew even though they are expected to at all times, identify themselves and justify their outings. The governor regrets all inconveniences caused by the curfew and appeals to citizens to carry on with their commitment in the collective search for sustainable peace in Borno State,” the statement read.
