Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State has suspended the 24-hour curfew imposed on the state to curb the breakdown of law and order.

He stated that only those on essential duties shall be permitted, upon proper identification, to move around during the curfew period.

In a statement on Friday signed by the State Secretary to the government, Wole Oyebamiji, the Osun government announced the suspension of the curfew.

The government appealed to the protesting youths to suspend their protest and engage the government in dialogue.

The statement reads: “After reviewing the situation of the last 48 hours and following the inauguration of the State’s Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Police Brutality, the Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, hereby suspends the 24-hour curfew, effective from today, Friday, October 23, 2020 till further notice.

“The suspension is to allow members of the public approach the Panel to make their submissions and to go about their lawful businesses.

“However, the Government will not hesitate to reinstate the curfew should the need arise.

“Government remains committed to the cause of our youths and the #EndSARS protesters and shall take every necessary step to ensure that their demands are met.”

“Considering the Government’s commitment and determination to meet the demands of the protesters, we appeal to the protesting youths to suspend their protest and engage Government in a dialogue.”
