COVID-19: Nigeria relaxes movement, restriction from 12am to 4am only
With the number of COVID-19 cases receding significantly in Nigeria, West Africa, the Federal Government on Thursday reviewed a nationwide curfew imposed to checkmate spread of coronavirus from 12am to 4am.
The Federal Government imposed a nationwide curfew on May 4, 2020 from 6pm to 8am. It later reviewed it from 10pm-4am on June.
The National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, disclosed this during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, on Thursday.
He said: “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.
“This does not apply to people on essential services and international travellers that might be returning from abroad.”
