According to a statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogien, the curfew will begin from 4:00 pm, October 19, 2020, until further notice,
“This decision has become necessary because of the very disturbing incidents of vandalism and attacks on private individuals and institutions by hoodlums in the guise of the End SARS protests.
“While the government of Edo State respects the rights of its citizens to undertake legitimate protests, it cannot sit idly when hoodlums have taken laws into their hands to cause mayhem on innocent citizens and the state.”
