    Nigerian authorities have imposed a dusk to dawn curfew on the city of Jos in central Plateau state, following hours of ethnic and religious tension.
    Angry youths protested against an attack by suspected cattle herders, who are predominately Muslim, on Friday morning.
    They destroyed properties belonging to Muslims, which sparked more tension and skirmishes between the two sides.
    The authorities say, imposing a curfew was necessary to prevent a further escalation of violence
    Journalist Jabber Atu in the city of Jos spoke to WADR about the situation in Jos.
