The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the full enforcement of the curfew imposed on parts of Southern Kaduna by the state government following the recent violence in the area.

The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Frank Mba, who disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja, said the curfew was part of efforts by the government to restore law and order in the affected areas.

At least 50 persons had been killed in the last few days by criminal groups in the area.

The Force spokesman said: “The CP is to ensure optimal deployment of human and material assets of the Intervention Squad currently on ground in the state to safeguard lives and property in the communities.
