Gombe State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew with immediate effect on Billiri Local Government Area of the state, following the eruption of violence in the area.

Prof. Abubakar Njodi, Secretary to the State Government made this known at a news conference in Gombe on Friday.

Njodi said that imposing the curfew became necessary to contain the violence which erupted in the area; as this could threaten lives and property.

Njodi noted that the curfew was the last option by the state government because some people have taken advantage of the protest to destroy lives and property.

Njodi said the state government had affirmed the need for peaceful co-existence among the citizenry and commitment to protection of lives and property.

He directed security agencies in the state to ensure strict compliance with the directive, with the exception of personnel providing essential services.

The state government has suspended all forms of gatherings in Billiri Local Government Area.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that some women in Billiri on Wednesday blocked the Gombe-Yola road over the state government’s delay in announcing the new Mai Tangle three days after kingmakers handed over their selection to the state government.
