From Christiana Gokyo, Jos
Plateau State Government after announcing a dusk to dawn curfew in three local government areas of Jos North, Jos South and Bassa, Governor Simon Bako Lalong directed the imposition of a 24-hour curfew in Jos North to contain further security threats.
In the directive the Governor said “from 2pm of today, August 15, 2021, a 24-hour curfew will come into effect in Jos North Local Government Area, this is necessitated by security reports which indicate rising threats to the safety of lives and properties within the Local Government.”
The governor therefore urged citizens to abide by the curfew and remain indoors to allow security agencies maintain law and order and deal with those bent on causing chaos.
The governor said the 24 hour curfew in Jos North Local Government will remain in force until further notice.
