Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State has relaxed the 24-hour curfew earlier imposed on Jos North Local Government on Sunday to its earlier status.
This decision was announced after a Security Council meeting, which was held at the government house on Wednesday
Under the new arrangement, the curfew will be observed from 6 pm to 6 am daily, beginning from Thursday, 19th August 2021 in the aforementioned LGA.
According to Makut Macham, spokesperson to the governor, Lalong said the new arrangement will also cover Bassa and Jos South LGAs, until further notice.
The governor also warned against attacks that would threaten lives and properties of citizens, adding that perpetrators of crime will be made to face the law.
Recall that the curfew was declared on Sunday after Muslim worshippers, who were on their way from Bauchi, were attacked in Jos, the Plateau capital.
More than 20 travellers were killed during the attack which occurred on Saturday, while several others sustained injuries.
