Plateau Governor Imposes Dusk To Dawn Curfew Over Hausa And Igbo Clash

Due to this falsehood and the frequent calls made by people to ascertain the authenticity of the information, Igbos in the markets chose to lock their shops earlier than usual to avoid any untoward situation and the action raised panic in the entire city as other shop owners hurriedly closed businesses too.

Following the reported clash in Jos on Thursday, which led to the Plateau state government declaring dusk-to-dawn curfew in the capital, the Police Command in the state has warned residents to desist from making inciting comments capable of threatening the existing peace in the area. He further appealed to all religious and community leaders, neighbourhood vigilantes as well as all law abiding citizens to ensure nobody is allowed to take advantage of this unfortunate situation to engage in criminality.

His words, "Community leaders must ensure peace in their domains. Let us talk to our youth to avoid taking laws into their hands".

Tyopev said the dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed by the state government was still in force and urged the people to obey it.

"We are in support of the federal government's resolve to ensure Nigeria is one and also, we stand with all security agencies in working to ensure that law and order are maintained while encouraging them to shun any blackmail in the course of their work", Jemchang said. "I can assure you that government is in total control", Dambazau said.

Both groups, in separate statements, noted, "CAN expresses great shock at the sudden build up of tension in Jos metropolis, CAN frowns at the conduct of some disgruntled elements whose stock in trade and design is to throw Plateau State into confusion".

JNI added, "We should know that this is a political problem and government seems to be on top of it".
