The Kaduna State Government in reaction imposed a 24-hourcurfew on Kaduna town and its envrions. "Residents are advised to comply by this directive", the statement read.

The clashes followed violence that broke out on Thursday between Muslim and Christian communities in the Kasuwan Magani area of southern Kaduna which left at least 55 people dead.

The decision has been taken in the best interest of the state.

The governor has in the early hour of Monday visited some locations in town and hospitals to monitor the curfew and assess the condition of victims.
