It was gathered that one person was reportedly shot by security operatives who opened fire after an angry mob kicked against the insistence on a formal handover before parents could leave with the released girls.

A statement signed by the Commissioner for Information, Sulaiman Tunau Anka, announced the curfew which began on Wednesday.

The statement said, “Sequel to an unfortunate civil disobedience which took place at Jangebe town after the return of the released abducted school children, the Zamfara State government has approved the imposition of a dusk-to-dawn curfew at Jangebe town starting from Wednesday, 3/3/2021.
