The Executive Governor of Taraba State, Dr. Agbu Kefas, has relaxed the 24-hour curfew in Karim town and its surroundings, following positive engagement with key players of the feuding communities in Karim Lamido LGA.
The curfew now takes effect from 6 pm to 6 am daily as a result of the dousing of tension in the area.
The curfew had to be eased by 12 hours as a result of the Governor noticing the positive outcome of further constructive engagement between the Wurkun and Karinjo community leaders.
Recall that Dr. Agbu Kefas convened an emergency meeting to resolve the crisis in Karim Lamido LGA with Security agencies and critical stakeholders on July 4, 2023, where significant decisions were made. The leaders subsequently traveled to their communities to inform their people of the resolution of the discussion.
