Kwara relaxes curfew on Ilorin

The Kwara State Government has relaxed the curfew imposed on Ilorin,the state capital after hoodlums looted a number of public and private concerns.

Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq Sunday evening held a security council meeting with heads of the security agencies in the state to review the situation in the Ilorin metropolis.

The meeting observed that the objective of the curfew has largely been achieved as the misguided elements who looted and vandalised public and private properties have been pushed back and normalcy restored, the chief press secretary to the governor, Rafiu Ajakaye said in a statement.

“Consequently, the security council resolved to relax the curfew from 24 hours to between 6p.m. and 8 a.m. daily until further notice. This means members of the public can move around between 8 a.m. and 6p.m. daily within the metropolis.

“Even so, the government will continue to review the situation and take decisions that are in the best interest of the state,” the statement said.
