The nationwide curfew from 10pm till 4am has been adjusted to 12 midnight till 4am.

Sani Aliyu, national coordinator of the presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19, announced the adjustment at a media briefing on Thursday.

He added that persons on essential services are exempted from the curfew hours.

“We are modifying the curfew to commence from 12 midnight to 4am nationwide, effective from 12:00 hours tonight,” Aliyu said.


“This does not apply to people on essential services and international travellers that might be returning from abroad.

“In terms of other aspects of general movement, no formal restriction will be applied within the country but the risk remains there. For citizens in particular vulnerability groups, the elderly, those with underlying medical illnesses are strongly advised to continue keeping away from mass gatherings and general public and staying at home.

“We will be engaging closely with state governments with regards to the issue of compliance, particularly with face masks because we remain quite concerned about the low level of compliance with this simple intervention measure that we know is quite effective.”


President Muhammadu Buhari had approved a nationwide curfew from 8pm to 6am on May 4, as part of measures to check the spread of COVID-19.

It was later adjusted from 10pm to 4am.
