The Federal Government has said that the nationwide curfew in place in the country to restrict movement following the coronavirus pandemic is now from 12am to 4am.
This was disclosed by the National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Dr. Sani Aliyu, during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, on Thursday.
He said, “I will first of all start with general movement. We are modifying the curfew to commence from 12 midnight to 4am nationwide, effective from 12:00 tonight.
“This does not apply to people on essential services and international travellers that might be returning from abroad.”
The federal government while announcing the gradual ease of lockdown, amidst the novel coronavirus pandemic, had on May 4, 2020, imposed a nationwide curfew from 6pm to 8am, but later reviewed the timing to between 10pm and 4am on June 1, 2020.
