The Enugu State Government on Monday, lifted the 13-hour curfew imposed on three Urban Local Government Areas of the state, following the violent protest that arose from the shooting of the #EndSARS protesters at Lekki Tollgate in Lagos state

Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi had at wake of the #EndSARS violent protests that saw the killings of both protesters and security agents, and destruction of public and private facilities imposed a dusk-to-dawn on three local government Areas of Enugu East, Enugu North and Enugu South to stem the destruction.

But in a statement by the Commissioner for Information, Mr. Chidi Aroh, said the decision to lift the curfew was “after a considered review of the overall situation in the three local government areas.”

Aroh also noted that the lifting of the curfew was hinged on the government’s commitment to total return of normalcy and sustained economic activity in the overall interest of “Ndi Enugu”. 

Part of the statement read,  “the 13-hour curfew imposed on the three local governments of the Enugu Capital Territory namely Enugu East, Enugu North and Enugu South Local Government Areas, is hereby lifted with effect from 6am on Monday, November 2, 2020.

“Normal social and economic activities will resume effective from 6am on Monday, November 2, 2020, without prejudice to all existing regulations put in place by the Federal Government as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

“Ndi Enugu are therefore advised to go about their lawful social and economic activities, while remaining vigilant and law-abiding as usual.”
