The National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID - 19, Dr Sani Aliyu, made this known during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport , Abuja , on Thursday.

Aliyu said , “ I will first of all start with general movement. We are modifying the curfew to commence from 12 midnight to 4am nationwide, effective from 12:00 tonight.
