Rivers State Government has imposed a 24-hour total curfew for two weeks around the Okoro-Nu-Odu Flyover in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
This follows recent upsurge of cult activities, related violence and killings around the adjourning areas of the Okoro-Nu-Odu flyover.
Governor Nyesome Ezenwo Wike who announced this during a state wide broadcast, warned that government would not spare any effort to deal with anyone who decides to disturb the peace and security of the state.
Governor Wike informed Rivers people of the award of contract of a sixth flyover along the kaduna Street and the proposed seventh flyover to traverse Ikoku to Azikiwe Street and thanked the people of the state for their cooperation and understanding for the challenges faced during the construction of flyover projects in the state.
He assured that the traffic challenges would be temporary as government has the commitment of Julius Berger to speed up and deliver the various flyovers within the stipulated timeline.
