She stated: “The government has once again observed the level of compliance to all directives aimed at restoring tranquillity to our dear State, and hereby appreciates the citizens for their patience and understanding. The government also appreciates security agencies for their efforts in maintaining law and order in the State.

“The government urged every citizen to be wary of actions that can upset the peace and harmony that the State is reputed for, and not hesitate to provide useful information to security agencies in case of suspicion of violence in any of our communities.

“The government is also calling on parents and guardians to continue to caution their children and wards not to allow themselves to be used by unscrupulous elements to jeopardize the peace of the State”, Egbemode

It will be recalled that the government had earlier relaxed the 24-hour indefinite curfew to run from 8:00 pm till 6:00 am daily, following observation of citizens’ compliance and cooperation with the government’s efforts to restore peace and normalcy to the State.
