This is coming after it was reported that the State Government imposed a 24-hour curfew on Kaduna town and environs, with immediate effect.

The Senior Special Assistant to the state governor on Media and Publicity, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, stated this on Sunday. The Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, has also deployed the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 7, Taiwo Lakanu, to lead a Police intervention force to Kaduna to ensure that normalcy returns to the area.

Recall that Fifty-five people were killed this week in clashes between young Christians and Muslims in northern Nigeria following a dispute at a market in Kaduna. Sources told AFP fighting broke out between Hausa Muslim and Adara Christian youths in the town of Kasuwan Magani’s market following a dispute among wheelbarrow porters. Two people were said to have been killed in the market fracas on Thursday. The violence was temporarily halted by police but Adara youth later mobilised and attacked Hausa residents, burning homes, the sources added.

“Most of the killings were done in the second attack which took the Hausa community off guard,” said Muhammadu Bala, a Kasuwar Magani resident who lost his home.
