UPDATE: Kwara relaxes curfew to between 6pm to 8am


Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has relaxes the 24-hour curfew imposed following the looting of shops in Ilorin on Friday.

The governor according to statement by Rafiu Ajakaye, the Chief Press Secretary said the decision was reached on Sunday after a  a security council meeting with heads of the security agencies in the state.

“A review of the situation in the ilorin metropolis suggested a relative calm. 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.

“Even so, the government will continue to review the situation and take decisions that are in the best interest of the state.”
