He said the state Command, in collaboration with sister security agencies, would commence full enforcement of the curfew imposed by government in the affected villages.

Nguroje said the state Commissioner of Police, Olugbenga Adeyanju, had appealed to the people in the affected local government areas to adhere to the directives of government bordering on the curfew.

He said a taskforce that comprised of the police and other security operatives had been deployed to the areas to augment the efforts of the Area Commander at Numan and Divisional Police Officer at Lamurde.

Nguroje said while the command urged members of the public to adhere strictly to the curfew, it urged deployed officers and men to display high level of professionalism and operate within the confines of the law and human rights. (NAN)
