State Govt. Imposes Dusk To Dawn Curfew As Christians and Muslims Clash in Kaduna

Following the burning of a church, and at least two mosques, including some buildings yesterday in Southern Kaduna by armed Christian and Muslim followers, a dusk-to-dawn curfew has been imposed in the State. According to SaharaReporters, the incident happened in the military town of Kachia that houses both the Nigerian Navy and Army institutions. 

Sources who spoke on condition of anonymity, said angry Muslims had attacked a church after their own praying ground was torched by Christians in the area. The military source also said the Nigerian military, and police officials, have both taken over the town as a dusk-to-dawn curfew was imposed by the Kaduna State government in view of a possible escalation.

The mood in Kachia on Sunday evening following both events is “tense,” says the source. The police authorities in the state are yet to make an official public announcement of their on-the-ground observations on the unfolding events of recent hours.  On the issue of casualties, possible fatalities, and details of property damage to the other buildings inside Kachia are not yet known.  See more after the jump..............

Police officials have also not yet released any information following the series of attacks, nor what caused the inflamed religious confrontations in Kachia.

The last thing we need right now is this distraction, instead of putting this energy to good use to help #BringBackOurGirls we still have time to fight ourselves, anyways there is God.
