1 Mins read

Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has imposed 24-hour curfew in Ilorin following violent protest and looting of properties by hoodlums.

The governor announced the curfew late Friday night in a statewide broadcast.

He said he just had an emergency security meeting with commanders of various security agencies in the state to assess the situation in the state.

“Over the last few days, I had earlier met with the traditional rulers, opinion leaders, members of the student community, and many other stakeholders in the state.

“Our observation is that what has happened so far today was not a protest. It cannot be defended under any guise.

”It was a pure act of criminality. Some persons are hiding under the nationwide tension to commit crimes,” he said.

Abdulrazaq said the government had a duty to protect law abiding citizens and their properties.

“Lives are being threatened. Businesses are being looted. Public properties have been targeted. This is unacceptable. It is not who we are.
