The Ondo State Government has announced the lifting of 24-hour curfew earlier imposed in the state at the wake of #EndSARS protests which resulted to violence in many parts of the country.
In a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Jogo, the development was to take effect from Saturday, October 24, 2020.
The decision to lift the curfew followed consultations between the Governor Oluwarotimi O. Akeredolu, SAN and security chiefs in the State after a preliminary assessment of the security situation in the State.
Governor Akeredolu, while giving approval for the lifting of the curfew, said the decision was mostly encouraged by the relative peace in Akure, the State capital.
“The relative peace in the State capital, Akure appears very encouraging just as the people’s resolve, especially the youths, not to allow brigandage under any guise is equally palpable. It is, therefore, only normal that law abiding residents are allowed to go about their legitimate businesses”, Governor Akeredolu asserted.
Government however, emphasised the need for all to be vigilant and law-abiding. This is more so, that security agencies deployed to strategic areas of the State capital are under strict directives to enforce law and order for the enforcement of permanent peace.
