Plateau state governor Caleb Mutfwang has imposed 24-hour curfew on the Mangu local government area, with immediate effect following the deteriorating security situation within the area.


In a statement, a spokesperson for the governor, Gyang Bere, said the decision was taken after consultations with relevant security agencies, 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 promised that the curfew would be reviewed as soon as security situation improves in the locality.
