Plateau State Governor Imposes A 24-Hour Curfew In Jos North LGA

Plateau State Governor imposes a 24-hour curfew in Jos North LGA

Plateau State Governor imposes a 24-hour curfew in Jos North LGA and here is the reason for that imposition. Following the incessant attacks on lives and properties, Governor Simon Lalong has imposed curfew in some LGAs of the State. The imposition of this curfew came few hours after he announced a dusk-to-dawn curfew in three LGAs of the state. The LGAs affected are Jos North, Jos South ad Bassa Local Government Areas of Plateau State respectively. Unfortunately, some miscreants still went ahead to use the dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed in these LGAs to cause mayhem.

So, to contain further security threats that will disrupt the State’s peace, Governor Lalong had to impose a 24-hour curfew. Consequently, the curfew imposition was disclosed in a statement read by the Governor’s Director of Press and Public Affairs. Below is an extract from the statement as read by Dr. Makut Simon Macham – the Governor’s Director of Press and Public Affairs:

From 2pm of today, Sunday 15th August 2021, a 24-hour curfew will come into effect in Jos North LGA. This is necessitated by security reports which indicate rising threats to the safety of lives and properties within the Local Government”. The Governor, therefore, urges citizens to abide by the curfew and remain indoors to allow security agencies to maintain law and order, and deal with those bent on causing chaos. The governor says the 24-hour curfew in Jos North Local Government will remain in force until further notice.
