The Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has lifted the curfew imposed due to the protest of the youths for the release of suspected murders of Deborah Samuel.

Deborah Samuel was a christian and a 200level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education which was killed over alleged blasphemy.

It was reported that the suspected murders were released which led to a protest on Saturday in Sokoto State in which the governor declared a curfew in the State.

Gov. Tambuwal has lifted the curfew with immediate effect and banned all forms of processions in the state until further notice. This was revealed in a statement announced by the Commissioner for Information, Alhaji Isa Bajini-Galadanchi, on Friday.

Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, CFR, Mutawallen Sokoto has after due consultations, lifted the curfew imposed on Sokoto metropolis with immediate effect .”
