Abuja - The Borno State Government has lifted the three-day curfew and restriction of vehicles in the state to stem breaches of security during the Eid-el-Fitri celebration.
State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Zannah Mustapha, confirmed the move.
He noted that the three-day curfew and vehicle restrictions were to protect people’s lives and property during the Sallah celebration.
Mustapha observed that the Eid-el-Fitri festivities were safe and successful, without recording any insurgents’ attacks.
As such, he said, people should not be compelled to be locked up in their homes and communities for more times.

He said has the state governor directed him to inform the military and other security agencies on the Maiduguri roads and streets to reopen them for motorists and residents.
Mustapha also directed the re-opening of all closed markets, motor parks, hospitals and schools in the metropolis.
“With the lifting of this curfew and vehicle restriction, residents can move and carry out their daily social and economic activities from 6am to 9.30pm daily,” he said.
The vehicular restriction and three-day curfew was imposed on the state, which has suffered the most Boko Haram attacks, last Friday.
