The Federal Government says the nationwide curfew in place in the country to restrict movement amid the coronavirus pandemic is now from 12 am to 4 am.

The National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, made this known during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, on Thursday.

Aliyu said, “I will first of all start with general movement. We are modifying the curfew to commence from 12 midnight to 4 am nationwide, effective from 12:00 tonight.

“This does not apply to people on essential services and international travelers that might be returning from abroad.”

The PTF, following the lifting of the lockdown occasioned by the pandemic, had on May 4, 2020, imposed a nationwide curfew from 6pm to 8am. It later reviewed the timing to between 10 pm and 4 am on June 1, 2020.
