Governor Jang Cuts Curfew Hours

Governor Jonah David Jang of Plateau State has further cut down the curfew hours by two. The announcement monitored on local radio says that the nine-hour curfew from 9 PM to 6 AM has now been reduced to seven hours starting from 11 PM to 6 AM.

Jang imposed a curfew in November last year when fighting broke out in parts of Jos-North following grassroots election. Jang had last year joked that he has realized that the curfew has strengthen families as fathers now go home early and as such he will not lift the restriction. Though the announcement was said jokingly the Governor appeared to have lived up to the statement. With the latest announcement, well meaning persons now feel that the curfew can as well last forever as no responsible persons will stay out beyond 11 PM except on essential duty.
