Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River has further eased the curfew imposed on the State due to the arson that occurred between October 23rd and 24th in the capital city of Calabar.

“Starting from tomorrow, Sunday, November 8, 2020, curfew will now be between the hours of 10pm and 6am,” read a statement issued by his chief spokesman, Christian Ita on Saturday.

“Consequently, restriction of movement is now relaxed between the hours of 6am and 10pm,” the statement read.

It further added that: “By this development, members of the public are free to go about their businesses from 6am to 10pm.”

An initial 24 hour curfew was imposed by Mr. Ayade to curb the ransacking of public and private properties. This was later relaxed to between 4:00PM and 8:00AM.

On the mast day of October, it was eased to between 6:00PM and 6:00AM.

The Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps as well as the Nigerian Police were drafted in to ensure residents obey the curfew.

And, there have been cases of abuse by the military and police.
