Rivers lifts curfew, suspension of council boss
The 14-day lockdown currently being observed in Lagos may be extended, according to state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, reports Sahara Reporters.
The governor made the comment on Saturday during a briefing with journalists.
He said a decision would be arrived at depending on how things unfold in the coming days.
He said, “If there’s a need to extend the lockdown, I will. We got one discharged patient today (recovered from the Coronavirus).
“We are going to sit down with the committee that is working on the community markets and see if we can announce more next week.
“There’s been no backlash on the handling of people by the security operatives so far. I always tell them to ‘wear a human face’.”
There are so far 209 confirmed Coronavirus cases and four recorded deaths in Nigeria.
Meanwhile, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has lifted the curfew imposed on Education bus-stop to Agip Junction along Ikwerre Road and Obiri Ikwerre Junction to Ozuoba, Rumualogu and Choba.
This took effect from Friday, April 3, 2020.
Governor Wike also lifted the suspension of the chairman and deputy chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
He announced these decisions during a statewide broadcast on Thursday.
He said, “With effect from April 3, 2020, the 24 hours curfew imposed from Education bus-stop to Agip Junction along Ikwerre Road and Obiri Ikwerre Junction to Ozuoba, Rumualogu and Choba has been lifted.
“All borders and markets in the state remain closed.
“Following the interventions of some well-meaning citizens of the state, the suspension of the chairman and deputy chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area has been lifted.
“However, this should serve as a warning to local government chairmen and traditional rulers who allow markets to open in their areas.”
