Following the killing of the traditional ruler of Oruku Community, in Nkanu East Local Government Area of Enugu State, HRH Igwe Emmanuel Chidiebere Mba, on December 26, 2020, “subject of an on-going Judicial Commission of Inquiry”, and the recent gruesome murder of the Vice Chairman of Oruku Town Union Caretaker Committee, Samuel Ani, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has imposed a curfew on the community.

A statement signed by the commissioner for Information, Nnayelugo Chidi Aroh, disclosed that the curfew was imposed by Governor Ugwuanyi, pursuant to Executive Order No. 2: 2021, dated 25th February 2021.

Aroh stated that the curfew, which is between the hours of 6pm to 6am daily, commences from 6pm, on Thursday, February 25, 2021, and ends at 6pm, on Wednesday, 31st March, 202, in the first instance.

The Information Commissioner further stated that “the Commissioner of Police, Enugu State Command has been directed to take all legal measures to enforce this order and ensure the arrest as well as prosecution of the perpetrators of this heinous crime”.

The state government therefore “enjoined the people of Oruku to stay the course of peace and go about their lawful businesses outside the hours of the day under curfew”.
