Victoria records just two new cases of COVID-19

The Edo State Government has announced a 24-hour curfew across the state. The secretary to the state government, Osarodion Ogie said the imposition of the curfew was due to the incidents of vandalism and attacks carried out by hoodlums who hijacked the #ENDSARS protests.

The protesters, mainly youths were protesting alleged brutality and extortions by operatives of the dissolved Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS)- a unit of the police. Those who can not move safely are to stay put between now and 4pm till calmness is restored.

"Parents and guardians are urged to restrain their children, wards and youths from flouting the order, as security agencies will not spare any errant individual".

The responsibility of government is to protect lives and property and maintain law and order, therefore, anyone found outside in violation of the curfew would be dealt with according to the law.
