 “The state government has further reviewed the curfew time in the state to commence from 10 pm to 6 am daily, as against 6 pm to 6 am.

“The adjustment will be effective from Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

“The government is fully committed to the security of lives and property and is working with security agencies to ensure peace and order is fully restored in the state,” the statement read in part.

It will be recalled that Obaseki had imposed a curfew on the state following the breakout of prisoners from the correctional center in Benin in the heat of the #EndSARS protest.

AllNews on Monday reported that Obaseki promised to take care of the welfare of the police while pleading with them to return to their duty post after they were attacked by hoodlums during the #EndSARS protest.
