It has been really tedious and stressful for many residents of Ondo state, Nigeria, following this recent upturn of protests and even violence due to some sad events played out in some states in Nigeria.
Finally, the people of Ondo state can now get back to their normal lives as the state Governor has stepped into the matter and resolved it after meeting with some in state leaders.
Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state lifted the 24 – hour curfew he imposed on the state, following the return of peace to Akure, the state capital.
Mr Donald Ojogo the state Commissioner for Information and Orientation, spoke on Friday in Akure, that this decision is with effect from Saturday.
Remember that Akeredolu imposed the curfew on Wednesday 21st of October to prevent loss of lives and properties as the #EndSARS protesters took to the street in major cities of the state.
“The relative peace in the state capital, Akure, appears very encouraging just as the people’s resolve, especially the youths, not to allow brigandage under any guise is equally palpable.
“It is, therefore, only normal that law abiding residents are allowed to go about their legitimate businesses.
“Government, however, emphasizes the need for all to be vigilant and law-abiding.
“This is moreso, that security agencies deployed to strategic areas of the state capital are under strict directives to enforce law and order for the enforcement of permanent peace,” he said. (NAN)
