Plateau Gov Declares 24-Hour Curfew In Mangu

Governor Caleb Mutfwang has imposed 24-hour curfew on the Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State, North Central Nigeria with immediate effect following the deteriorating security situation within the area.

In a press statement, a spokesperson for the governor, Gyang Bere, said the decision was taken after consultations with relevant security agencies and to avoid breakdown of law and order in the local government area.

Bere said citizens, especially Mangu residents, are enjoined to comply with the sit-at-home order while only persons on essential duties are allowed to move within the local government area until further notice.

The governor lamented that some people are still determined to create an atmosphere of insecurity in the state despite government’s efforts to end activities of terrorist elements.

He also expressed sympathy to families of the victims and the injured with assurances that government will not relent in ensuring lasting peace in the state.
