A 24-hour curfew has been imposed by Nigerian military troops in parts of Maiduguri, Borno state capital as security forces press its offensive against Boko Haram insurgents.
“In order to sustain special operations in the face of recent Boko Haram attacks, a 24-hour curfew is hereby imposed in the following wards,” BBC quoted the military statement.
11 areas of the city have been named as those to observe the curfew and people expected to remain inside their homes until further notice.
Maiduguri, capital of Borno state, has been an important base for Boko Haram Islamist militants.
65 suspected members of insurgents were also arrested on Saturday in Maiduguri.
