Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike, has revealed that the curfew imposed on the state will now be enforced from 7: pm to 6:am daily.

 

According to him, the new enforcement time of the curfew will take effect from Tuesday, May 11, and last until further notice.

 

Governor Wike stated this in a state-wide broadcast on Monday, May 10, adding that the curfew is a step towards enhancing the collective safety of the state, following last Friday’s attack on security formations across the state which led to the death of seven police officers.

 

He said:

 

“As a further step towards enhancing our collective safety, we have reviewed the existing night curfew across the twenty-three local government areas which will now start from 7pm and end at 6am until further notice from tomorrow 11th of May 2021.

“Security agencies are hereby directed to note the new curfew time, ensure strict compliance and effectively deal with any person or group that violates or attempt to violate this order.

“We reviewed and for the moment declined the pressure on the state government to activate youths to defend the state from the terrorists because we don’t want to complicate our very delicate security situation by creating opportunities for some other monster to emerge.

“However, we are determined to deploy everything with our disposal to advance the security of lives and property in our state and nothing will stop us from defeating the evil forces presently threatening our individual and collective security.”
