Wike imposes night curfew at all Rivers’ land borders


Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Tuesday imposed night curfew at all entry and exit points into the state, Abia, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, and Imo States.

Wike announced this in a State broadcast.

According to him, the curfew which takes effect from Wednesday night, is necessitated by the recent security breaches and deadly attacks on security personnel by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.

He said: “The Government of Rivers State has decided to restrict night movements into and out of the State from the land borders of the State.

“Consequently, a night curfew is hereby imposed and no person or vehicle is allowed into and out of Rivers State from 8.00 p.m. to 6.00 a.m. from tomorrow (Wednesday) 28 April 2021 until further notice.

Wike also said security agencies have been posted to monitor and enforce strict compliance with the curfew at all borders and or entry and exit points with Abia, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, and Imo States.
