Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has relaxed the curfew on the people of Ilorin, the state capital from 24 hours to 12 hours.
This was contained in a statement by Rafiu Ajakaye, Chief Press Secretary to the governor, late last night saying the Curfew will now be between 6 pm and 8 am as from today (Monday), October 26, 2020.
The statement titled, ‘Update on curfew in Ilorin Metropolis (Kwara State)’, reads:
“A review of the situation in the Ilorin metropolis suggested a relative calm. The meeting observed that the objective of the curfew has largely been achieved as the misguided elements who looted and vandalised public and private properties have been pushed back and normalcy restored.
“Consequently, the security council resolved to relax the curfew from 24 hours to between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m. daily until further notice. This means members of the public can move around between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily within the metropolis”
The governor had announced the imposition of 24 hours Curfew on the people of Ilorin following massive vandalisation and looting of government and Private properties and businesses in the state capital on Friday and Saturday.
