The Kaduna State government on Friday imposed a 7:pm to 7:am curfew on two communities after two youths were killed in a communal clash in Kwaru and Ungwan Yero of Kaduna North Local Government Area.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai visited the families of the two youths and condemned the killings while expressing sympathy to the bereaved.
He assured them that law enforcement agencies had been directed to thoroughly investigate the killings and bring those involved to book.
El-Rufai, in the company of deputy governor, Barnabas Yusuf Bala and other senior government officials, appealed to residents of the communities to reject division in the name of religion or ethnicity and to uphold harmony in the area.
A statement signed by Samuel Aruwan, the senior special assistant to the governor on media, disclosed that more security agents had been deployed to the area, and appealed to residents to observe the dusk to dawn curfew which would be strictly enforced.
