Kaduna curfew relaxed gradually

Kaduna state government has relaxed the curfew imposed on parts of the state albeit gradually.Today, the curfew  was lifted between 1pm and 4pm.

After 4pm  residents were  expected to go indoors to observe the curfew .Subsequently, the curfew  will be lifted between 7am and  4pm.An observer noted that this gradualist approach may be  a measure of the lingering tension  and  that the authorities may just be trying to test the security waters with the new experiment.

There were reports skirmishes at Goningora area of Kaduna metropolis yesterday.At least 5 people were killed  according to a report in the violence which erupted  despite the curfew.

Last week, a decision to lift the curfew resulted in disastrous consequences as violence broke out afterwards.The authorities and stakeholders are determined to avoid a repeat of that again.
