Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong has directed the total lifting of the curfew in Jos North, Jos South, and Bassa local government areas.
The new directive was given after a State Security Council Meeting which was held at the Government House in Jos.
Noting that the council reviewed the security situation in the affected local government areas and the state in general, Lalong said in place of the curfew, the relevant security agencies should mount well-coordinated and round-the-clock checks in strategic areas of the state to ensure the safety of lives and properties of the people during the Yuletide season.
Governor Lalong directed that the curfew be lifted with effect from Friday 17th December 2021 until further notice.
The total ban on motorcycles within the Jos-Bukuru metropolis is however, still in force while their operations in other local government areas will stop at 8 pm.
Tricycles within the metropolis will continue to operate on the existing template of 6 am to 6 pm only.
