In response to the escalating communal conflicts in certain areas of Karim Lamido Local Government Area (LGA), the Executive Governor, Dr. Agbu Kefas has announced an immediate 24-hour curfew, effective from July 2nd, 2023.

The declaration came through a press release issued by Yusuf Sanda, the Chief Press Secretary to the Executive Governor.

The primary objective of the curfew is to restore peace and ensure the safety of residents in Karim town and its surrounding areas. The recent upsurge in communal tensions necessitated this decisive action to prevent further violence and protect the lives and property of the people.

To enforce the curfew, security agencies have been given strict instructions to ensure compliance. Any individual or group found violating the order will face legal consequences in accordance with the law.

Governor Agbu Kefas urges all ward heads, village heads, traditional rulers, and stakeholders in Karim Lamido LGA to be aware of this development and cooperate fully. Their cooperation and support are crucial in maintaining peace and order during this period of unrest.
