Kaduna relaxes curfew, begs airlines, NRC to resume operations

The Kaduna State Government has relaxed the 24-hour-curfew imposed on the metropolis and its environs in the wake of the tension generated by the killing of the Agom Adara, Dr Maiwada Galadima, by suspected kidnappers.

A government statement through the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the state govenor, Mr Samuel Aruwan, on Sunday, said the curfew would now commence from  dusk to dawn(5pm to 6am) as against the 24-hour period.

Tension mounted as the news of the murder of the paramount  ruler of Adara filtered into the state capital on Friday morning.

The chief with his wife were abducted penultimate Friday while a police orderly and three palace guards attached to the traditional ruler were killed.

Two days later, the wife was released while the kidnappers held her husband.

However, six days later, the Agom Adara was killed and his corpse dumped near the bush along the Kaduna-Abuja highway at Kateri.

The body was taken to the St. Gerard’s Catholic Hospital, Kakuri in the state capital, forcing the government to reinstate the curfew earlier imposed on the state.

The governor’s spokesman, who said the review of the curfew was with immediate effect, requested that airlines and the Nigerian Railway Corporation should “promptly resume services to Kaduna State.”

It said residents were free as from 5pm today, Sunday, 28th October 2018 to pursue their legitimate activities unhindered.

The statement reads, “The Kaduna State Government has relaxed the curfew in Kaduna metropolis and environs with immediate effect. Residents are free to pursue their legitimate activities from now till 5pm today, Sunday, 28th October 2018.
