Governor Wike made the announcement on Thursday during a nationwide broadcast.
The statement comes just two days after the Governor placed a night curfew on all state land boundaries.
According to the Governor, a review of the security situation after the last curfew was placed reveals that security risks remain.
“It has become urgent for the state government to take additional appropriate steps to protect our state and preserve lives and property,” he says.
“As a result, the state security council has today agreed and recommended that a statewide curfew on human and vehicular activities be enforced as part of additional efforts to deter the faceless attackers from unleashing their lethal actions,” according to the statement.
“As a result, a night curfew is hereby enforced on the entire twenty-three local government areas of the state, barring any human or vehicular travel inside or to any part of the state from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., effective today, April 29, 2021, until further notice.”
The governor clarified that the curfew is intended to safeguard the state and ensure the safety of people and property.
He also appealed for the understanding of residents of the state while charging them to report any suspicious movement to security agencies.
