The Taraba State Government has lifted the curfew it imposed on Jalingo, the state capital to forestall the escalation of the post-election violence.

The violence broke out soon after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced results of the governorship elections.

In a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Darius Ishaku, Hassan Mijinyawa, the state government commended the people for their patience throughout the duration of the curfew and urged them to remain law-abiding.

It quoted Ishaku as directing the security agents to continue their surveillance and patrols to avert any ugly incident.

Naija News had reported that a 24-hour curfew was imposed on the state capital when tension enveloped it after the announcement.

It was later reviewed to 14 hours, starting from 4 pm to 6 am daily
