Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara has lifted the curfew imposed on the state capital, Ilorin, effective from Thursday.

This is contained in a statement in Ilorin by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Rafiu Ajakaye.

The governor, however said, residents may see increased joint patrols by security agencies within the metropolis and across the state.

“It is to strengthen the gains of the past weeks and keep criminal elements at bay. Citizens are to go about their lawful business without any fear.

”The government, sincerely, commends citizens and all critical stakeholders, especially the security agencies, for their support for the measures taken to strengthen security in the wake of some recent developments,” it said.
