The Jema’a Local Government of Kaduna State on Monday imposed 24-hour curfew on Kafanchan and its environs to forestall breakdown of law and order.
The curfew was imposed after a peaceful protest by youths in Kafanchan against killings in Southern Kaduna.
The Interim Chairman of the council, Dr Bege Katuka, confirmed the development on telephone in Kafanchan on Monday.
He said that the decision became necessary to forestall breakdown of law and order and save lives and property.
The official advised members of the public to be calm and remain indoors until further notice.
