The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has adjusted the curfew from 12 midnight through 4a.m. as it continued the gradual easing of lockdown measures imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
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.
