The curfew takes effect from 7 p.m. Wednesday, until further notice.
The order was contained in a statement on Wednesday, signed by the state Commissioner for Information, Nnanyelugo Aroh.
The Commissioner noted that, persons on essential services in the affected LGAs such as health care workers, staff of Water Corporation, EEDC, Fire Service, and Enugu State Emergency Management Agency, shall continue to attend to their duties.
Mr Aroh stated that the decision;
“followed the observed hijack of #EndSARS protests, which had been peaceful in the past days, by miscreants who plan to unleash mayhem.”
He added that;
“The Governor of Enugu State in fulfilment of his primary responsibility of protection of lives and property of all law-abiding residents in the state has therefore, ordered the imposition of the curfew in the above mentioned local governments, until further notice.”
