Election results: Taraba lifts curfew on Jalingo

By Gabriel Yough

#TrackNigeria: The Taraba Government on Tuesday lifted the curfew it imposed on Jalingo to forestall the escalation of  the post-election violence  that broke out soon after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the results of the governorship polls.

A statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Darius Ishaku, Alhaji Hassan Mijinyawa,

commended the people for their patience throughout the duration of  the curfew, and urged them to remain law abiding.

It quoted Ishaku as directing the security agents to continue their surveillance and patrols to avert any ugly incident.

A 24-hour curfew was imposed on the state capital when tension enveloped it after the announcement.

It was later reviewed to 14 hours, starting from 4 pm to 6 am daily. (NAN)
