Darius Ishaku, Governor of Taraba State, has ordered an extension of the dusk-to-dawn curfew originally imposed on Jalingo, the Taraba State Capital, on Monday, to 24 hours. 

The order was contained in a statement by Bala Dan Abu, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity.

Following the 24-hour directive, the Governor directed all security agencies in the state to ensure strict enforcement of the curfew.

The curfew was necessitated by wild jubilation following the victory of Ishaku, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in Saturday's election in the state.
