The Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has relaxed the curfew imposed on the state following the violence that occurred in the wake of the #EndSARS protests.

The protest last week turned violent in Ekiti with hoodlums burning three trucks and several cases of rape and attacks reported in Ado Ekiti metropolis.

In a statement by the Commissioner for Information, Mr. Akinbowale Omole,
on Monday, the governor said the 24-hour curfew has been reviewed and would now be in place between 8pm and 6am.

It reads: “This is to inform the general public in Ekiti State that the state government has reviewed the period of the ongoing curfew.

“It is now from dusk to dawn, starting from 8pm to 6am.

“All members of the public are to go about their normal businesses without fear of molestation.”
