He said the curfew takes immediate effect in all the 23 Local government areas in the state.

The governor recalled that the State Security Council had placed a night-time curfew on all entry and exit points with Abia, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, and Imo States on April 28, 2021, in response to recent murderous attacks on security personnel in Ikwerre and Abua/Odual Local Government Areas.
