Long queues at Automated Teller Machines (ATM), banks and fueling stations across the city of Calabar, the Cross River State capital on Tuesday greeted the easing of a dusk to dusk curfew earlier imposed by the Cross River State government.

The curfew was announced as part of measures to curb the looting of public and private properties last weekend.

The State on Monday, eased the curfew allowing people to move freely between 8:00AM and 4:00PM.

When this reporter visited the city, fueling stations, banks and ATMs were packed with traffic jams in some parts of the city as commuters struggle to beat the 4:00PM curfew.

Despite fueling stations selling at regulated price, this reporter observed that transportation fare remained at NGN100 per drop, a 100 percent increase from the normal NGN50

Furthermore, there have been spells of congestion on Marian road, Ndidem Usang-Iso road, Akai Effa, MCC, Parliamentary and the Murtala Muhammed highway as commuters try to meet up with their schedules before 4:00PM.
