Zamfara State Government has imposed a dusk to dawn curfew in the state following an incident that occurred at Jangebe town on Wednesday.
The incident reportedly followed the reunion of 279 abducted schoolgirls of Government Secondary School with their parents.
According to reports, one person was shot by security operatives who allegedly opened fire after an angry mob kicked against the insistence on a formal handover before parents could leave with the released girls.
To prevent further breakdown of law and order in the area, the State Government imposed a curfew which started on Wednesday.
This move was contained in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information, Sulaiman Tunau Anka.
Recall that the abducted girls were released on Tuesday morning.
