Imo State Governor Hope Uzodimma Saturday relaxed the 24 hours curfew imposed on the state following the wanton destruction unleashed in some parts of the state during #Endsars protest across the country.
The governor who announced this during a state broadcast on Saturday, said as the situation in the state and the country gradually returns to normal, ‘it is necessary to relax the curfew announced on Wednesday.’
Consequently, he said the curfew will now start from 6pm to 6am everyday for now, adding that those on approved essential services are however exempted from the curfew.
He commended the youths across the country in general and in Imo State in particular for heeding to President Muhammadu Buhari and his calls to end the protests.
He also lauded the youths from across the country in general for conducting themselves responsibly during the #EndSARS protests by pulling out after making their grievances known, noting that the unfortunate destruction of government facilities and private property in Imo in the guise of protests afterwards was the handiwork of mercenaries hired to wreak havoc in the state.
