The Yobe State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew on Damaturu following Monday’s attacks on the town by gunmen suspected to be members of the dreaded Islamic-sect, Boko Haram.
The curfew was imposed Tuesday in a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the state Governor on Press Affairs and Information, Abdullahi Bego,. The statement said the curfew took immediate effect.
Governor Ibrahim Gaidam approved the order after meeting with heads of law enforcement agencies in the state as contained in the statement.
The decision to impose the curfew to Gaidam, was taken as part of measures to enable the security agents who did a great job repelling the insurgents attack on the town, to conclude their assignment.
