The Kaduna State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew in Kafanchan, Jemaa Local Government Area of Kaduna State following a reported plan by some people to cause a breakdown of law and order in the area.

The curfew, which was announced by Chairman of the council, Dr Bege Katuka, follows a protest held on Monday morning by some indigenes of southern Kaduna to further draw attention of government to the constant killings of their people by suspected herdsmen.

Although the State Government had on Sunday, December 17, banned all forms of procession and unlawful assembly, the protesters who are mainly youths, defied the order and took to the streets of Kafanchan as early as 8am to demand for the arrest of perpetrators of the attacks that have claimed many lives.

Business activities have been paralysed due to the curfew while only the police and other security agencies were seen patrolling the streets.

Scores of people have been killed during herdsmen attacks on farmers in communities in Sanga, Jemaa and Kaura local government areas of Kaduna State. (Channels TV)
