Governor Wike said the decision followed last Friday’s attack on security formations across the state which led to the death of seven police officers.

“As a further move toward improving our public safety,” the Governor said, “we have reviewed the current night curfew around the twenty-three local government districts, which will now begin at 7 p.m. and conclude at 6 a.m. before further notice beginning tomorrow, May 11th, 2021.”

“Security authorities are hereby advised to take notice of the new curfew period, to ensure full enforcement, and to comply efficiently with any individual or organization that violates or attempts to violate this order.”

The Governor also said his government has “reviewed and for the moment declined the pressure on the state government to activate youths to defend the state from the terrorists because we don’t want to complicate our very delicate security situation by creating opportunities for some other monster to emerge”.

“However, we are determined to deploy everything with our disposal to advance the security of lives and property in our state and nothing will stop us from defeating the evil forces presently threatening our individual and collective security.”

Governor Wike further appealed for the understanding of members of the public over the recent review of the curfew.
