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.
“A review of the situation in the Ilorin metropolis, suggested a relative calm.
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.
According to the statement, the government will continue to review the situation and take decisions that are in the best interest of the state.
The government had imposed a 24-hour curfew on Ilorin metropolis following last Friday’s wanton looting and destruction of public and private facilities in the State capital under the guise of End SARS protests allegedly hijacked by hoodlums.
