The dawn-to-dusk curfew that was enforced in Kano State because of tensions based on the expected outcomes of the governorship and state assembly elections has been lifted.
“The decision to lift the curfew was made after a careful review of the situation and the relative calm throughout the state,” the state Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Muhammad Garba, said in a statement on Monday night.
He urged commercial banks, government employees, and state residents to conduct their regular business.
“We urge the people to go about their legitimate business without fear of molestation or harassment,” he added.
The commissioner also expressed his gratitude to the state’s residents for their cooperation throughout the curfew.
“We appreciate the cooperation of the people during the period of the curfew. We urge them to continue to maintain peace and order,” he said.
Meanwhile, the state police command has assured the people of their safety and security, warning troublemakers to steer clear of the state.
“We have deployed our personnel across the state to maintain law and order. Anyone caught causing trouble will be dealt with according to the law,” said the state police commissioner.
