End SARS: Gov Ikpeazu makes slight adjustment in curfew time

Okezie Ikpeazu, the Governor of Abia State, has approved a slight adjustment in the curfew imposed on Aba and Umuahia following the outbreak of violence that marred the End SARS protest.

The approval was made known in a release issued to newsmen in Umuahia, on Friday, by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Onyebuchi Ememanka.

DAILY POST recalls that Nigerians had embarked on protest, condemning the brutality of the disbanded Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, F-SARS.

The protest turned violent leading to wanton destruction of lives and property between the citizenry and the security agents across the country.

But, Governor Ikpeazu, in the release, stated that the current curfew period of between 5pm and 8am has now been adjusted to between 6pm and 6am, effective tomorrow, Saturday, October 31st, 2020.

“There shall be free movement between the hours of 6am in the morning and 6pm in the evening, after which movement ceases”.

Ikpeazu enjoined the residents of Aba and Umuahia to continue to keep the peace, and avoid any acts likely to cause any form of breach of public peace in the cities.

“Those on essential services are also exempted from the new curfew regime.

“The general public and especially, security agencies should take note, please”.
