#EndSARS: Anambra state govt lifts curfew

Gov Willie Obiano

Following a great improvement in the security situation in Anambra State, Governor Willie Obiano has lifted the curfew imposed on the state with immediate effect. 

A press statement signed by the state Commissioner for Information  and Public Enlightenment,  C. Don Adinuba, which made this known, notes that "consequently, all educational institutions closed last week in the wake of the havoc visited on the state by gangs of arsonists are hereby directed to resume normal activities immediately."

In the same vein, all civil servants were directed to return to work, immediately.

"Governor Obiano thanks Ndi Anambra for their great cooperation, which enabled normalcy to return to our state within a short period. The Governor thanks in particular the youth throughout the state who answered the clarion call to defend their towns and villages," the statement reads, adding, "He also appreciates the cooperation of Presidents General of Town Unions and Traditional Rulers." 

The press statement also noted that the governor is proud of the role of the members of the Nigeria Police Force, Department of State Security, Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, Nigeria Civil Defence and Security Corps, Nigerian Immigration Service, Nigerian Correctional Service and, of course, Anambra Vigilante Group in the quick restoration of law and order in our dear state. 

Adding that Anambra remains the safest and peaceful state in Nigeria, the press statement also said that much as the security situation has improved greatly, "Anambra State government wishes to advise all citizens and organisations to watch out for elements, especially those from outside the state, who may want to cause trouble in our place," saying, "people are advised to report any suspicious movement to the nearest police station or the President General or Traditional Ruler of the town or to any senior Government official."
