Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has on Sunday lifted the dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed on Ado-Ekiti, the state capital on May 22, after a crisis that saw house and properties burnt to ashes in the state capital.
The governor stated this in his broadcast to the people of the state in Ado-Ekiti, mentioning that the state government had also placed N2 million reward for anybody that could provide information that will facilitate the arrest of those that kidnapped 11 people in different parts of the state recently.
He described the crisis between the Hausa community and commercial drivers in Ado-Ekiti that led to the imposition of the curfew as unfortunate.
However, Fayose urged residents to be law-abiding and conduct their activities in a manner that would not cause further further crisis or disrupt the peace of the state.
The state government lifted the curfew after security agents restored peace in the state, he said, expressing regrets for the inconveniences the curfew might have caused the residents of the town.
He said that kidnapping was strange to the state, warning that the state government would fight it.
