The Nigerian Army has reminded the public that the dusk to dawn curfew imposed on Maiduguri, capital of Borno State, as a result of terrorist activities remains in force.

Deputy Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Mustapha Anka, warned today that defaulters would be severely dealt with. He said in a statement issued in Maiduguri: “It has come to the notice of Headquarters 7 Division Nigerian Army Operation LAFIYA DOLE that some members of the public violate orders on curfew imposed in Maiduguri and environs. Violation of curfew threatens the relative peace being enjoyed in Maiduguri town. Please be reminded that a legitimate curfew in Maiduguri imposed from 9pm to 6am is still in force.

“The Division wishes to inform the general public that despite the successes recorded against Boko Haram insurgents across the state, the fight against insurgency is not yet over. The Borno State Government and Headquarters Theatre Command will at the appropriate time review the curfew in line with prevailing security situation across the state.

“We wish to reiterate that anyone found flaunting the orders will be arrested and prosecuted. All law abiding citizens and peace loving people of Borno State are hereby advised to report any suspicious person(s) to nearest military post, security agencies or Civilian Joint Task Force.”
