Udom

Akwa Ibom State government has reported the expansion of curfew by 13 hours from 12noon on Friday to 7am on Saturday, 24th October 2020.

The curfew was forced by Governor Udom Emmanuel, following the fierce exhibition that emitted after two people suspected to be EndSARS protesters were shot dead by a presumed soldier along Willington Bassey Way, Uyo Akwa Ibom State.

The commissioner of Information and Strategy, Ini Ememobong, in an announcement on Friday, said the expansion was because of the unfurling functions and circumstances being checked by the state and security agencies.

The statement reads in part, “Due to developing situations being monitored by the state government and security agencies and the inevitable need to protect citizens and property, based on overriding the public interest, the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, has extended the curfew, which was initially due to expire by noon of 23rd October 2020, till 7 am on Saturday, 24th October 2020. This curfew has a statewide effect.
“Expectedly, there will be a total cessation of movement, except for those on essential duties, who must show proper identification.
“All law-abiding citizens are advised to remain at home, as security agencies have been briefed to strictly enforce this order.”
