Amuwo Parrot News (APN) reports Governor Okowa made this known in a state-wide broadcast on Thursday.
The Governor also ordered a 48-hour curfew in the State starting from 6 pm today, saying that this follows the unfortunate incidences happening in the country.
This SARS occasion threatens to plunge the State into chaos and anarchy. It is a clear and present danger that we must stop from happening.
In the meantime, I have ordered the closure of all public and private primary and secondary schools in the State until Monday November 2nd 2020.
Because of the incidence that took place last night, I hereby impose a 48-hour curfew starting 6 pm today October 22 2020.
It, therefore, means that everybody is expected to sit at home, exempting those on very essential service in the next 48 hours starting 6 pm today.
“Thereafter, we will review the situation and know what next steps to take,” Okowa said.
