The Nigeria Inspector-General of Police force, Mohammed Adamu, has rescinded his order restricting the movement of essential workers in the country, after 8pm.
Journalists, Medical personnel, and other essential workers were shocked on Tuesday evening when policemen restricted them from moving within Lagos at the beginning of the 8 pm curfew imposed to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
They were informed that there is a new directive from the police boss, which states that all human and vehicular movements, irrespective of whether they are on essential duties or not, are to be stopped once the curfew starts at 8pm.
