THE Anambra State government has lifted the curfew imposed in the State last week following a great improvement in the security situation in Anambra State.

A statement by C. Don Adinuba, commissioner of information on Tuesday, October 27, and made available to Realnews stated that Governor Willie Obiano, consequently, directed all educational institutions closed last week in the wake of the havoc visited on the state by gangs of arsonists and looters to resume normal activities.

Similarly, all civil servants are directed to return to work immediately.

Governor Obiano thanked Anambra people for their great cooperation which enabled normalcy to return to our state within a short period.

“The governor thanks in particular the youth throughout the state who answered the clarion call to defend their towns and villages. He also appreciates the cooperation of Presidents General of Town Unions and Traditional Rulers. Chief Obiano is proud of the role of the members of the Nigeria Police Force, Department of State Security, Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, Nigeria Civil Defence and Security Corps, Nigerian Immigration Service, Nigerian Correctional Service and, of course, Anambra Vigilante Group in the quick restoration of law and order in our dear state. Anambra remains the safest and peaceful state in Nigeria.

“Much as the security situation has improved greatly, the Anambra State government wishes to advise all citizens and organisations to watch out for elements, especially those from outside the state, who may want to cause trouble in our place. The people are advised to report any suspicious movement to the nearest police station or the President General or Traditional Ruler of the town or to any senior Government official,”  the statement said.
