The Palace of the Sultan of Sokoto came under attack on Saturday, over the arrest of the suspected killers of Deborah Samuel.
It was gathered that a combined team of security men, led by state’s Police Commissioner, Mr Kamaludden Okunlola had deployed to the palace while protesters threw stones and attempted to burn the palace.
All the religious centres were also under tight security.
Meanwhile, Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state on Saturday imposed a 24-hour curfew to contain the rising protests across township streets over alleged religious blasphemy.
Tambuwal, in a statewide broadcast, called on the people to remain indoor as security operatives were being deployed to safeguard lives and properties.
