The Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano has announced that the 24-hour curfew in the state has been eased.
“The curfew in Anambra State has been eased and now commences from 6pm to 6am daily. This is to enable our people to gradually get back to their normal lives after the unrests recorded in some parts of the state these past days”.
Continuing, Governor Obiano reiterated his earlier call on youths of Anambra state to unite and guard their communities, saying that the security agencies have been strengthened and will continue to maintain peace and order in Anambra state.
“Intelligence at our disposal shows that those that have been causing trouble these past days in the state are from neighbouring states. We will not allow them to destroy our infrastructure, including police stations and other government facilities, some of which we built through self-help and community efforts”.
Governor Obiano said that “enough is enough”, and warned those who still plan to cause trouble in the state to desist or face the consequences.
Concluding, the governor thanked traditional rulers in the state, the clergy, youth groups and other stakeholders for their continued partnership with government in ensuring that life returns to normalcy in the state after the #EndSars protests.
Governor Obiano particularly praised the courageous efforts of some youth groups who have organised themselves to begin the clean up of Anambra state. “I call on residents of Anambra state to join in cleaning their neighbourhoods including drainages. The state Ministry of Environment, ASWAMA and Anambra State Clear Drainage and Forest Preservation Agency (ACDFA) have been directed to lead this effort across the state with immediate effect”.
