The curfew will now be observed between 6 p.m and 8 a.m daily until further notice.

A statement in Ilorin, by the spokesman of the governor, Rafiu Ajakaye, said the decision was taken at the end of a State security council meeting held by Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, with heads of the security agencies in the State.

“The meeting observed that the objective of the curfew has largely been achieved, as the misguided elements who looted and vandalized public and private properties, have been pushed back and normalcy restored.

“Consequently, the security council resolved to relax the curfew from 24 hours, to between 6 p.m and 8 a.m daily until further notice.

“This means members of the public can move around between 8 a.m and 6 p.m daily within the metropolis,” it said.
