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.

Tambuwal in a statement issued by the Commissioner of Information and Orientation, Isah Galadanci, banned all forms of processions in the State until further notice.
The statement reads in part: “Acting on enabling powers under Section 176 (2) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, sections 1, 2 and 4 of the Public Order Act and Section 15 of Sokoto State Peace Preservation Law, Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, CFR, Mutawallen Sokoto has after due consultations, lifted the curfew imposed on Sokoto metropolis with immediate effect.”
He, therefore, urged residents of the state to be law-abiding and stressed the need for peaceful coexistence among Nigerians.
