The Kwara State government has relaxed the 24-hour curfew earlier imposed on the State’s capital Ilorin.

The curfew times have been shifted to between 6 pm, and 8 am until further notice.

This update was contained in a statement by the spokesman of the governor, Rafiu Ajakaye.

Ajakaye noted that the decision was taken at the end of a State security council meeting held by Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, with heads of the State’s security agencies.

“A review of the situation in the Ilorin metropolis, suggested a relative calm.”

“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 pm and 8 am daily until further notice.”

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

The statement also noted that the government would continue to review the situation and make decisions in the State’s best interest.

The government had earlier imposed a 24-hour curfew on the Ilorin metropolis, the wanton looting and destruction of public and private facilities in the Kwara State capital on Friday under the guise of #EndSARS protests allegedly hijacked by hoodlums.
