The commissioner of information and internal affairs in the State, Muhammad Garba, announced in a statement issued on Monday.
According to him, the decision was to prevent hoodlums from causing chaos in the already tense environment.
He, therefore called on the residents of the state to remain indoors as security agents would not spare anyone, or a group bent on causing trouble.
