Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal, yesterday lifted the curfew imposed on the state capital just as he banned all forms of processions in the state.
Recall that the curfew was imposed on Saturday due to protests by youths calling for the release of the suspected killers of Deborah Samuel, a Christian student of Shehu Shagari College of Education (SSCOE), murdered over alleged blasphemy.
