The Taraba State government has lifted the curfew imposed on residents of Jalingo.

The government imposed the curfew on the state capital to forestall the escalation of the post-election violence that broke out almost immediately after the results of the governorship election was announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

This was contained in a statement by Alhaji Hassan Mijinyawa, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Darius Ishaku.

Security agents were also directed to continue their surveillance and patrols of the state.
