Borno Govt Imposes 24-Hour Curfew In Maiduguri

The Borno State government on Monday imposed a 24-hour curfew on Maiduguri metropolis following an attack by suspected members of the Boko Haram sect in some parts of the state capital.

The secretary to the state government, Ahmed Jidda,  announced the decision in a statement released to newsmen in Maiduguri.

The statement said that the curfew was imposed in consultation with the 7 Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri.

“During the period of curfew, government pleads with all citizens to remain calm. Only vehicles on emergency calls and essential services are allowed to move while the curfew will be lifted as soon as situation improves,” it stated.
