After being forced to stay indoors all through Tuesday owing to a 24-hour curfew initially placed on Jalingo, the Taraba state Capital, residents of the city can now have a feel of fresh air as the stay-at-home order has been relaxed.

The Taraba State Governor Darius Ishaku through his Chief Press Secretary Hassan Mijinyawa announced on Wednesday said that the 24-hour curfew has now been reduced to from 6pm to 4am.

A dusk to dawn curfew was first imposed on Jalingo on Monday when the results of the Governorship Election held last Saturday were being collated before it was made a 24-hour curfew on Tuesday following reports of wild celebrations in part of the metropolis.

However, following the improved situation across Jalingo and other parts of the state, the 24-hour curfew has now been reduced to from 6pm to 4am.

He said: The Taraba State Government has relaxed the 24 hours curfew imposed on Jalingo the state capital. The curfew now runs from 6pm to 4am.

“All business activities are expected to resume and civil servants should report to their duty posts.”

There are insinuations that the anticipated wild jubilations and possible resentments from other quarters from the announced results from the governorship elections informed the placing of curfews in the Jalingo metropolis.
