Dust To Dawn Curfew Imposed In Taraba State
Final collation was still ongoing at the time of filing this report, but drastic measures have been taken to prevent break down of law and order.
While final collation of results from Saturday’s governorship election is obviously slow, most residents in Taraba State appear to be running out of patience already.
But the state government on Monday imposed a dusk to dawn curfew on Jalingo, the state Capital from Monday March 11, until further notice.
According to a statement signed by Alhaji Hassan Mijinyawa, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Darius Ishaku, the curfew would run from 6p.m to 6a.m daily.
The government however, explained that some INEC Officials, Key agents of political parties and observers involved in collation of elections results are exempted.
Gov. Darius Ishaku appealed to the people of the state to continue to be law abiding and urged security agents to ensure strict compliance in order to prevent break down of law and order in the state.
At the time of filing this report, results from eight local government councils so far collated, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won seven, while the All progressives Congress (APC) won one.
Results from the remaining eight local government councils were still being collated.
