The Kaduna State Government has extended the 24-hour curfew imposed on Thursday on two chiefdoms in Kauru and Zangon Kataf Local Government Areas (LGAs).
The Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan, made the announcement in a statement issued on Friday.
Aruwan said the extension of the curfew was to cover the whole of the two local government areas – Kauru and Zangon Kataf.
“Security agencies are working to contain the situation that stared as a clash last week over farmland in Zangon Kataf.
“Extending the curfew is part of the necessary steps to manage the tensions and restore calm in the areas,” he said.
