The Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government on Thursday stated that the nationwide curfew in place in the country to restrict movement amid the coronavirus pandemic is now from 12 am to 4 am.
This was made known by the National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.
“I will first of all start with general movement. We are modifying the curfew to commence from 12 midnight to 4am nationwide, effective from 12:00 tonight,” Aliyu said.
“This does not apply to people on essential services and international travellers that might be returning from abroad.”
Recall that the federal government had imposed a nationwide curfew from 6 pm to 8 am in order to curb the spread of the virus.
The federal government later reviewed the timing to between 10 pm and 4 am on June 1, 2020.
