Curfew Reviewed For Ramadan In Maiduguri


By Musdafa Ilo, Maiduguri

The Borno State government has reviewed the curfew imposed on the state for the purpose of this year’s ‘Ramadan commencing today, Thursday..

    The announcement, made by Governor Kashim Shettima will see movement extended to 9:30pm, as against 7pm.

    Borno State, which has been under curfew for over two years, has always reviewed the curfew during Ramadan to enable residents go for prayers and other activities. This year’s review, however, is only for residents in the state capital and Jere Local Government Area.

    “The curfew is only applicable to the residents of Maiduguri metropolis and Jere Local Government Area, while those wishing to enter the town (from) outside the metropolis will be restricted on or before 7pm,” the governor announced, referring to 7pm to 6am curfew that will continue in other parts of the state.

    Shettima, however, warned residents against doing anything inimical to the security of the state and advised them to be vigilant, law abiding and to use the Ramadan season to pray for peace in the state.
