Dr Sani Aliyu, who is the National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 disclosed this during briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, on Wednesday.
Aliyu said, “I will first of all start with general movement. We are modifying the curfew to commence from 12 midnight to 4am nationwide, effective from 12:00 tonight.
“This does not apply to people on essential services and international travellers that might be returning from abroad.”
