Governor Wike Imposes Night Curfew in Rivers State Over Fears of Attack

The Governor of Rivers State in Nigeria’s oil-rich Niger-Delta region, Nyesom Wike has imposed a curfew on across the 23 Local Government Areas of the State with effect from Thursday over possibilities of deadly attacks across the state.

The Governor made this known in a statewide broadcast saying that the decision is based on an exhaustive deliberation by the State Security Council at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Thursday.

In his words, Wike said the State Security Council has, today, after exhaustive deliberation, decided and advised that a statewide curfew on human and vehicular movements be imposed as part of additional measures to prevent the faceless criminals from unleashing their deadly actions.

“Consequently, a night curfew is hereby imposed on the entire 23 Local Government Areas of the State prohibiting any human and or vehicular movement within or any part of the State from 10.00 p.m. to 6.00 a.m. from today 29th April 2021 until further notice,”
