A 24-hour curfew has been imposed on Gombe, the Gombe State capital following an attack by Boko Haram insurgents on Saturday, the governor’s spokesman has said.

“Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo has directed that a 24-hour curfew be imposed on Gombe as a result of the security breach in the city”, Ayuba Aluke said.

He, however, did not specify if the curfew would be in effect statewide.

“By this announcement residents are to remain indoors until further notice as security operatives work to restore law and order in the city”, the governor’s spokesman added.
