Aminu Tambuwal, has, after due consultations, lifted the curfew imposed on Sokoto metropolis with immediate effect
“The Governor has urged the general public to be law-abiding and remain peaceful at all times, stressing the need for peaceful co-existence amongst the people in the state. He reiterated the need for peace as the necessary foundation for any meaningful development.”
Meanwhile, while appreciating the people of the state for their understanding in complying with the curfew, the governor has, however, banned all forms of processions in the state until further notice
