Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state has lifted the curfew he imposed on Aba on Sept. 12, as a result of the improved security situation in the commercial city.
Ikpeazu, in a statement issued in Umuahia on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Enyinnaya Appolos, commended Aba residents for complying while the curfew lasted.
The governor urged them to remain law=abiding in order to ensure lasting peace in the city.
He also thanked security agencies for their efforts during the period the curfew lasted and protecting the lives and property in Aba.
The Abia Government imposed the dusk-to-dawn curfew, following clashes between some members of pro-Biafra group IPOB and the military.
