The federal government has again shifted the curfew emplaced to curtail the spread of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 (PTFCOVID19) made this known on Thursday.
The federal government approved the shifting of the curfew to 12 am. The curfew will persist from the 12 am till 4 am nationwide.
“I will first of all start with general movement. We are modifying the curfew to commence from 12 midnight to 4am nationwide, effective from 12:00 tonight.
“This does not apply to people on essential services and international travellers that might be returning from abroad,” the National Coordinator of the PTFCOVID19, Dr Sani Aliyu said during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.
