Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong on Thursday imposed a dusk to dawn curfew on the Jos metropolis and directed the immediate deployment of security personnel in all flashpoints within the Jos metropolis to ensure compliance with the curfew.

A statement by the Director of Press and Public Affairs in the Government House, Dr. Emmanuel Nanle, said “This is to forestall any breakdown of law and order.

The Executive Governor has directed the immediate deployment of security personnel in all flashpoints within the Jos metropolis to ensure compliance with the curfew and to avert any further breach of the peace.”

According to Nanle, the decision followed rumours that there could be violent reactions within the Jos metropolis in response to the crisis in Abia State.

Nanle said, “Following the unfortunate reaction and spread of rumours within the Jos metropolis in response to the agitation by IPOB, the Executive Governor of Plateau State, Hon. Simon Bako Lalong, has directed an immediate imposition of curfew from dusk to dawn (6pm – 6am) within the Greater Jos – Bukuru Metropolis until further notice.
