Lalong Re-Imposes 24-Hour Curfew On Jos Communties

The Governor Simon Lalong-led Plateau State government has relaxed the curfew it imposed in Jos North Local Government Area.

Naija News reports that this was made known by Lalong spokesperson, Dr Makut Machan.

He stated that the ban placed on tricycle, popularly referred to as Keke, has also been lifted.

According to Machan, Lalong approved the new measures during a meeting of the State Security Council held at the new Government House in Jos on Tuesday.

The statement said: “Beginning from Wednesday, 8th September 2021, the curfew in Jos North will be enforced from 10pm to 6am.

“This will tally with the current status of the curfew in Jos South and Bassa Local Government Areas which still remains from 10pm to 6am.

“Similarly, Governor Lalong also approved that beginning from Wednesday, 8th September 2021, the ban placed on operations of tricycles will be lifted from 6am to 6pm daily. This means that no tricycle will be allowed to operate between the hours of 6pm to 6am.”

Naija News understands that the ban on motorcycles within the Jos/Bukuru metropolis remained in place.

Lalong warned that enforcement would continue to ensure that violators were arrested and punished according to the law.

Plateau state in recent times have been engulfed in crisis leading to indiscriminate killings.

This had forced the state and federal government to take measures aimed at restoring peace to the north-central state.
