Following the relative peace at Yelwan Tsakani, Lushi, and Anguwan Kusu communities of Bauchi Local Government Area of Bauchi State, the police on Tuesday announced a review of the 24-hour curfew imposed on the communities following recent skirmishes.

Leakblast.com reports that the skirmishes started as a fight between two youths over a girl and later snowballed into a communal crisis in the three communities, leading to the death of three persons, while scores of houses were burnt down.

Announcing the review of the curfew to 12 hours, the state Commissioner of Police, Umar Mamman Sanda, in a press release signed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Ahmed Mohammed Wakil, stated that the review followed the improvement of security in the areas within the last couple of days.

The release informed that CP Sanda visited the warring communities on an inspection visit to assess the security situation in the communities.

It added that the police boss sympathised with and comforted residents and directed a thorough investigation into the matter to bring the perpetrators to book.

The CP appealed to community and religious leaders, youth leaders in the areas, and the general public to maintain a close watch over the behaviours of youths.

He called on the people of the areas to always report any suspicious activities noticed to the nearest police station to forestall a future occurrence of such incident.

“To this end, the Command urged citizens not to panic and go about their normal business, that there is no cause for alarm.

“The officers and men of Bauchi State Police Command are ever ready to respond to a distress call and any other security situation to stop it from degenerating further,” Wakil, a Superintendent of Police (SP), stated.
