The state government imposed the curfew in Jema’a, Zangon-Kataf and Kaura Local government areas in December 2016.

The statement noted that the decision was taken by the Kaduna State Security Council after reviewing the situation in Zangon-Kataf Local Government Area.

It pointed out that the Council, in taking the decision, said it was imperative people in the area discharged their duties to uphold peace.

The council also urged the people to strongly resist those who might wish to sabotage the gains being made in restoring normalcy in the area.
