GOV. ABDULRAZAQ RELAXES CURFEW IN ILORIN
By: Akpan Sunday
The Governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has relaxed the 24-hour curfew imposed on the state.
Recall Titanic Media had earlier reported that the Kwara state government declared the curfew on the state metropolis following violent attacks and looting of both public and private concerns on Friday by hoodlums masquerading as #EndSARS protesters.
In a statement titled, “A review of the situation in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, suggested a relative calm” issued the governor’s spokesperson, Rafiu Ajakaye, said that curfew is now 6pm and 8am daily.
According to Ajakaye, the decision was reached after a meeting with heads of security agencies in the state.
Part of the statement read, “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 6p.m. and 8 a.m. daily until further notice. This means members of the public can move around between 8 a.m. and 6p.m daily within the metropolis.”
