Obiano lifts curfew, orders schools to reopen in Anambra



Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, on Tuesday lifted the curfew imposed on the state.

The Head of Service, Harry Udu, who announced the lifting of the curfew in a memo, said the governor also directed schools and civil servants in the state to resume on Wednesday.

Consequently, all educational institutions closed last week in the wake of the havoc visited on the state by gangs of arsonists are hereby directed to resume normal activities immediately.


In the same vein, all civil servants are directed to return to work immediately.

Obiano had on Friday imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state following a threat of an attack on the state by hoodlums masquerading as #ENDSARS protesters.

He later relaxed the curfew from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.


The memo read: “All Hon Commissioners, Heads of MDAS, Perm. Secs and HODS: Please take notice that His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano, Governor of Anambra State has lifted the curfew imposed in the state.

Governor Obiano thanks Ndi Anambra for their great cooperation which enabled normalcy to return to our state within a short period.

The Governor thanks in particular the youth throughout the state who answered the clarion call to defend their towns and villages. He also appreciates the cooperation of Presidents General of Town Unions and Traditional Rulers.


Governor Obiano reaffirms how proud he is of the role of the members of the Nigeria Police Force, Department of State Security, Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, Nigeria Civil Defence and Security Corps, Nigerian Immigration Service, Nigerian Correctional Service and, of course, Anambra Vigilante Group in the quick restoration of law and order in our dear state.
