Aliyu, however, explained that people on essential service and travellers returning from abroad were exempted from the curfew.
“I will first of all start with general movement. We are modifying the curfew to commence from 12 midnight to 4a.m. nationwide effective from 12:00 tonight.
“This does not apply to people on essential services and international travellers that may be returning from abroad,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the PTF, following the lifting of the lockdown occasioned by the pandemic, had on May 4, 2020, imposed a nationwide curfew from 6p.m. to 8a.m.
Also in June, the PTF reduced the nationwide curfew from 10p.m. to 4a.m. in a bid to limit social interactions and reduce the risk of transmission of the virus.
