According to report reaching OYOGist.com, the Akwa Ibom State Government has reportedly lifted the curfew which was imposed as a result of the Endsars protest which rocked the country some weeks back.
According to the state Commissioner Information and Strategy, Ini Emem Obong, he stated that the halting of the curfew became necessary due to the return of normalcy to the state environs.
In a statement which was issued by Mr. Obong, he said; “Following the return of normalcy and wide consultation with the security architecture of the State, Governor Udom Emmanuel has directed the discontinuation of the curfew which was imposed due to some security challenges that occurred in our state.”
“This discontinuation directive takes effect immediately and therefore repeals the earlier directive imposing the curfew.”
“The Governor appreciates the citizens for their understanding and cooperation and commends the gallantry and dedication displayed by our security agencies, throughout the period of the curfew.”
This is coming after several weeks of the #Endsars protest which took the country by storm. The governor who earlier declared the curfew in the state has now relaxed the curfew due to the state of normalcy in Akwa Ibom.
