Following a violent clash in Yelwa area of Bauchi metropolis, the Bauchi State Government has imposed an indefinite 12 hour curfew (7pm to 6am) in some parts of Bauchi State following the crisis that erupted on Sunday night.

 The Governor in a statewide broadcast Tuesday evening  said that the curfew became necessary in order to prevent further breakdown of law and order in the affected areas and a possible spread to other parts of the town and state at large.

 He stated that the areas affected by the imposition of the curfew include Yelwa Tsakani, Ungwan Kusu, Ungwan Ngas, Lushi and Yelwa Kagadama narrating that: “A sad development on Sunday 18th November, 2018, occurred following a misunderstanding between some youth around Yelwa Tsakani and Lushi communities during a birthday party. This degenerated into a communal crisis leading to the loss of 3 people and destruction of two houses at Yelwa Tsakani settlement.”

 The Governor said that the government will not fold its arms and watch some disgruntled elements destroy the hard-earned peace in the state and said that the unfortunate incident resulted in affecting the relative peace enjoyed in the State since the inception of this administration.

He added that the incident also came at a time when the federal government was taking necessary measures to restore peace in some parts of the country ravaged by communal conflicts.
