Nationwide curfew now 12am to 4am – Nigerian Government

The Federal Government says the nationwide curfew in place in the country to restrict movement amid the coronavirus pandemic is now from 12am to 4am.

The National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, made this known during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, on Thursday.

Aliyu 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.”

The PTF, following the lifting of the total lockdown occasioned by the pandemic, had on May 4, 2020, imposed a nationwide curfew from 6pm to 8am. It later reviewed the timing to between 10pm and 4am on June 1, 2020.

The PTF had also lifted the ban on inter-state movement and okayed the resumption of domestic and international flights.
