Ebonyi state government has reduced the 24-hour curfew earlier imposed in the state to 8:00p.m. to 8:00a.m.
Governor David Umahi gave the directive on Friday in Abakaliki through the Commissioner for Information and State Orientation, Mr Uchenna Orji.
The new directive is with effect from Friday, Oct. 23, 2020, from 8p.m to 8a.m across the state.
He had earlier imposed a 24-hour curfew in the state from 7p.m on Oct. 21, to forestall further breakdown of law and order by protesters.
“There shall be an 8p.m to 8a.m curfew across the state, starting from Oct 23,” Umahi said.
