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 6 pm to 8 am. 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 .
