BREAKING NEWS: Government reduces Maiduguri curfew to 11 hours, ‘restores’ GSM

The GSM networks were shut since May.

‪The Borno State Government has reviewed the 24-hour curfew in Maiduguri, the state capital. The curfew is not to last from 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

Indications also emerged on Tuesday that GSM networks have been restored in the troubled state.

The decision to review the curfew was reached during a closed-door meeting between government officials and security agencies on Tuesday, the Secretary to the State Government, Baba Jidda, said in a statement.

‪GSM networks have been grounded since May when a state of emergency was declared in Borno.

Already residents of Maiduguri have begun to receive weak signals on their phones.‬

The two directives are believed to be part of the decisions reached to forestall the kind of attack that occurred in Maiduguri on Monday morning. Premium-Bosky
