Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau has imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on the area.
The curfew will run from 6 am to 6 pm daily, it said.
“There are recurring incidences of attacks on Irigwe chiefdom and neighbouring areas around Bassa; there are also attacks on communities on the borders of the local government, especially around Vom in Jos South and Manchok in Kaduna State.
“To guarantee effective security operation toward protecting life and property, the governor has approved the imposition of a dusk-to-dawn curfew, which takes effect immediately,” the statement said.
