Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has approved the imposition of a dusk to dawn curfew in Gboko town from yesterday, January 31, 2018, until further notice.

“The curfew which will last from 6 pm to 6 am every day is as a result of security threats in the area,” the Governor’s Special Adviser, Media and ICT, Tahav Agerzua, said in a statement last night.

“Those exempted from the curfew are those on essential services such as hospital staff and others who show convincing identification.

“He has directed security agencies particularly the police and the army to provide round the clock surveillance in the town so as to forestall a breach of the peace.

“The Governor has appealed to residents of Gboko to comply with the curfew in their own interest as security operatives have been directed to arrest those found moving about in the town during the period of the curfew,” the statement said.
