“Accordingly, the state security council has today, after exhaustive deliberations decided and advised that a statewide curfew on human and vehicular movements be imposed as part of additional measures to prevent the faceless criminals from unleashing their deadly actions”.

“Consequently, a night curfew is hereby imposed on the entire twenty-three local government areas of the state, prohibiting any human and or vehicular movement within or any part of the state from 10pm to 6am from today 29th April 2021, until further notice”.

The governor explained that the intention behind the curfew is to secure the state and guarantee the protection of lives and property.

He also appealed for the understanding of residents of the state while charging them to report any suspicious movement to security agencies.
