The Kaduna State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew on Kwaru and Ungwan Yero, two communities affected by violence.

The government, in a statement made available to OkayNG.com by Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s spokesperson, Samuel Aruwan, said the decision was taken after a review of the security situation in the communities.

Residents of the two communities were enjoined to comply with the directive, as security agencies have been directed to vigorously enforce the curfew, Mr Aruwan said.

The extension of the curfew followed a fresh attack by suspected gang members on Sunday evening. They who went on rampage in Malali, a neighbouring community to Kwaru-Unguwar Yero, Kaduna State, attacking residents.
