Easter Fatal Crash: Normalcy Returns To Gombe

Normalcy has returned to Gombe metropolis after a curfew was imposed following fighting at the funeral of nine members of boys brigade, who died from a car rammed into an Easter procession.

The curfew imposed from 3 pm last Saturday, which expired Sunday morning, is still subject to a review.

Troops and other security personnel deployed to enforce the curfew on Sunday maintained a tight grip on the metropolis.

Fresh fighting began on Saturday as Christians and members of Boys Brigade cordoned off roads leading to the Hospital where the bodies of the slain members of the Brigade were kept and the CAN centre where funeral service was held.

A group of people protesting the blockade of the roads intercepted the procession, leading to a fight between them.
