Tambuwal Reviews 24hours Curfew in Sokoto State

The Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has reviewed the curfew imposed on Sokoto State during the weekend. 

On Saturday, Governor Tambuwal imposed a 24hours curfew on the state, following the riot that ensued after the arrest of suspects involved in the lynching of Deborah Samuel, a 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education.

According to the statement signed by the state Commissioner for Information, Isah Galadanci, on Monday, the curfew has been reviewed from 24 hours to dusk to dawn.

This review is to enable the residents of Sokoto state to embark on their day to day business in line with the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The statement read, “Sequel to the briefing by the Security Heads in the State, the State Governor, Rt Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, CFR Mutawallen Sokoto, has ordered the relaxation of the 24-hour curfew in force in Sokoto metropolis.

“The revised curfew will now be from dusk to dawn in Sokoto township. This is to afford people the opportunity to pursue their legitimate businesses and other means of livelihood.

“The Government, however, advises people to maintain peace in this regard, as it will not condone any breach of law and order in the State.”
