Kafanchan curfew relaxed for WAEC candidates
The 24-hour curfew imposed on Kafanchan, headquarters of Jema’a LGA of Kaduna State on Wednesday was temporarily relaxed yesterday to enable candidates write the 2014 West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) the council chairman said yesterday.
Daniel Amos said residents were free to go about their normal businesses from 6am to 4pm pending when security agents take firm control of the area. The curfew was imposed following clashes that erupted after some Fulani men were arrested with arms.
“We relaxed the curfew on the consideration of students writing WAEC,” Amos said, adding that it was a precautionary measure to prevent breakdown of law and order, and lifting it totally would be by hours and gradual.
