Vehicular movements were brought to a standstill as gunshots were fired into the air while a motorist who tried to turn back had an accident.

The Niger Police Command and the State Government were yet to speak on the incident.

The Shiroro local government chairman declared a 7pm to 7am curfew in Gwada and its environs.
