The Police wrote on twitter, “All essential workers including Medical Personnel,Firefighters, Ambulance Services,Journalists,etc are exempted from the restriction of movement associated with both the partial lockdown and the national curfew across the Federation”.

It was reported earlier on how essential workers were restricted from moving within Lagos at the beginning of the 8 pm curfew imposed to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

According to security officials enforcing the order, health workers and journalists were not allowed to move after 8 pm.

However, in a statement late Tuesday, IGP Mohammed Adamu said essential workers can now go about their essential duties.
