Plateau Govt Imposes Curfew On Three LGAs Following Herdsmen Attack

The Plateau State government has imposed a curfew in three troubled Local government Areas (LGAs) of the state. This follows the attack on some villages in Barkin Ladi LGA by suspected herdsmen on Saturday, while Riyom and Jos South LGAs are also affected by the curfew.

The Secretary to the State Government, Mr Rufus Bature, explained in a statement that the dusk-to-dawn curfew was to avert a breakdown of law and order. He added that movement has been restricted from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am, except those on essential duties in the three council areas.

The attack on the villages took place more than three months after the state government imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on Bassa LGA.
