The government of Kogi state has declared a 24-hour curfew in the five local government areas of Kogi central senatorial district.

The affected local government areas are Adavi, Ajaokuta, Okene, Okehi and Ogori/Magongo.

Petra Akinti Onyegbule, chief press secretary to Yahaya Bello, governor of the state, disclosed this in a statement.

No reason was given for the action which was taken late Wednesday.

“This is a notice of a 24-hour curfew imposed on residents of the five local government areas of central senatorial district beginning from midnight (the next one hour),” the statement read.

“This curfew will last for 24 hours and it is absolute. No movement whatsover shall be allowed.

“All residents of Adavi, Ajaokuta, Okehi, Okene, Ogori/Magongo Local Government Areas are advised to comply by this directive as anyone who runs foul would have themselves to blame.

“Government regrets every inconvenience this might cause and assures citizens and residents this decision has been taken in the best interest of the state.”

The high rate of insecurity in Kogi has been a source of concern to the government.

Last week, Abdulmumini Yakub, a Labour leader, was killed in Okene.
