Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State has relaxed the 24-hour curfew imposed on the state capital following the violent protest that greeted the arrest of some suspects who were allegedly involved in the brutal murder of Deborah Samuel, a 200-level student of Sokoto College of Education.
A statement issued by the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Isah Bajini, said the curfew has been relaxed, and will now be observed from dusk to dawn in Sokoto township.
The statement noted that “Sequel to the briefing by the security heads in the State, the State Governor, Rt Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has ordered the relaxation of the 24-hour curfew in force in Sokoto metropolis.
“The revised curfew will now be from dusk to dawn in Sokoto township. This is with a view to affording people the window to pursue their legitimate businesses and other means of livelihood,” Tribune quoted him as saying.
Meanwhile, the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has reached out to all members across the country to embark on a peaceful protest nationwide in demand of justice for the slain Shehu Shagari College of Education student, Deborah Samuel Yakubu.
Deborah was clubbed to death and set ablaze over her comment against Islamic religion alleged to be blasphemous.
The student was laid to rest amid tears in Niger State, near Abuja on Saturday.
