The Force Public Relations officer, Frank Mba, has confirmed to TVC News that essential duty staff are allowed to move about after 8pm.
He confirmed this not too long ago and also said that all jopurnalists and health workers who were arrested and detained at police stations will be released.
Mr MBA later issued a statement and was also made available to TVC News. The statement reads: “All essential workers including Medical Personnel, Firefighters, Ambulance Services, Journalists, etc are exempted from the restriction of movement associated with both the partial lockdown and the national curfew across the Federation.
“The Inspector General of Police, IGP Mohammed A. Adamu has therefore directed all Zonal Assistant Inspectors General of Police and Commands Commissioners of Police to give effect to these exemptions whilst enforcing the restriction orders,” Mba stated.
