After suspected hoodlums on Monday hijacked the #EndSARS protests in Benin City, Edo State capital and freed prisoners, the Edo State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew across the state till further notice.

Gov Godwin Obaseki curfewThe government in a statement obtained by The Street Reporters Newspaper said:

The curfew is to take effect from 4pm, October 19, 2020.

This decision has become necessary because of the very disturbing incidents of vandalism and attacks on private individuals and institutions by hoodlums in the guise of #ENDSARS protesters.

While the government of Edo State respects the rights of its citizens to undertake legitimate protests, it cannot sit idly when hoodlums have taken laws into their hands to cause mayhem on innocent citizens and the state.

By the directive, schools and businesses are to shut down activities accordingly. Those who cannot move safely are to stay put between now and 4pm till calmness is restored.

Parents are advised to rein in their children, youths and wards, to forestall further breakdown of law and order.

The responsibility of government is to protect lives and property and maintain law and order, therefore, anyone found outside in violation of the curfew would be dealt with according to the law.

Osarodion Ogie Esq.
Secretary to the State Government,
Edo State.
