Nigeria’s Federal Government has reviewed the nationwide curfew imposed to curtail the spread of coronavirus from 12am to 4am.
This was disclosed on Thursday by the National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.
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.”
Recall that the Federal Government had imposed a nationwide curfew on May 4, 2020 from 6pm to 8am before later reviewing it to 10pm-4am on June 1.
