The governor of Anambra State, southeast Nigeria, Governor Willie Obiano, has lifted the curfew imposed on the state.
Naija News recalls that the Anambra Governor had imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state last week Friday following the threat of an attack on the state by hoodlums in the guise of #ENDSARS protesters.
In a broadcast to the people of the state, Governor Obiano had said that he was compelled by the prevailing situation in the country to take the decision but on Sunday, the governor relaxed the curfew from 6 pm to 6 am.
But in a memo on Tuesday evening, by the Head of Service, Harry Udu, the Anambra governor said the curfew had been lifted, directing schools and civil/public servants in the state to commence work on Wednesday.
The memo read in part; “All Commissioners, Heads of MDAS, Perm. Secs and HODs, please take notice that His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano, Governor of Anambra State has lifted the curfew imposed in the state.
“Consequently he has directed that normal work and education activities should resume with effect from tomorrow 28th October 2020
“All should please take note and comply accordingly.”
