Gov Akeredolu Sues For Peace, Lifts Curfew

Posted on October 24, 2020

The Executive Governor of Ondo State, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on Friday evening, lifted the 24 – hour curfew earlier imposed to curb the spate of violence in the state.

The curfew was earlier imposed when hoodlums hijacked the #EndSARS protests against Police brutality to perpetrate mayhem in the state. The miscreant had attacked a prison in the state, freeing inmates. Several Police stations, business premises as well as public and private properties have been looted and torched this week.

Governor Akeredolu, while announcing the lifting of the curfew, said the decision was taken because of the relative peace being observed in Akure, the state capital.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Ondo State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo.

The statement read, “The decision to lift the curfew follows consultations between the Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN and Security Chiefs in the state after preliminary assessment of the security situation in 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.”
