JTF Slams 24-Hour Curfew on Potiskum!

The Joint Task Force in Yobe State on Tuesday imposed a 24-hour curfew on Potiskum, the Headquarters of the Fika and Potiskum emirates.
The spokesman of the JTF in the state, Captain Lazarus Eli in a statement urged residents of Potiskum to cooperate and abide by the order.
Though no reason was given for the curfew, Captain Eli stated that “residents of Potiskum are enjoined to remain calm and cooperate with security agencies. By remaining indoors until the curfew is lifted”.
It is believed that the curfew is to enable security agents conduct search operations for terror suspects who might be in or around the area. Apart from an attack in which 29 students were killed recently, Potiskum has been under series of attacks. A suicide bomber attempted to blow up the Emir of Fika last year.
