Delta state government has announced a relaxation of the lockdown after it was ordered due to the EndSARS protest.
In a statement by the Commissioner for Information, Mr Charles Aniagwu, on Saturday, he said the curfew which had previously been from 6pm to 8am will now be between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Thus new rule is set to begin with effect from Saturday, October 31.
“As a government we are not unmindful of the stress our people are going through on account of the curfew, but it was inevitable in order to protect lives and property of Deltans.
“I must thank Deltans for protecting the interest of our common patrimony by ensuring that no further destruction of public buildings was recorded in the state.
“As part of our avowed commitment to build a stronger Delta with our youths, let me also express the determination of the State Government to give effect to the decisions reached at the recent Town Hall meetings with youths in the state.”Photo Credit: Twitter
