The Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, while urging residents of the state to adhere strictly to the new directive declared in a statement issued.
Osagie reassured Edo residents that the Obaseki-led administration remains committed to the security of lives and property.

There have been reports of widespread arson and violence in the past few days as rampaging hoodlums looted, razed and destroyed public and private assets around the country, especially in Lagos, Abuja, Benin, amongst others.
The hoodlums also attacked two prisons in Edo this week, freeing about 2,000 inmates.
