The governor also told the people of the state not to congregate for Easter Church services but observe them online or through the electronic media.

The new directive is contained in a statement issued by the state commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hon. Declan Emelumba, who said the approval is for the people of the state and residents to shop for food items for the Easter celebrations.

“This means that the total lock down of the state will be temporarily relaxed on Friday (tomorrow) April 10 to enable Imo people and residents shop only for food items for the Easter celebrations.


Consequently food markets and food vending supermarkets will be allowed to open from 6am to 6pm tomorrow. All concerned are advised to adhere strictly to the time allowed and ensure that they shop only for food items.

The total lock down of the state resumes with full force from Saturday April 11,2020. Imo people are therefore advised to observe the Easter Sunday church services on-line or through the Eletronic media as it affects their respective denominations.

Security agencies are under firm orders to ensure that the lock down order is strictly adhered to and that those caught in violation are promptly arrested and prosecuted .
The governor appeals to Imo people to take the total lock down order with the utmost seriousness it deserves as every measure taken is aimed at keeping the COVID 19 pandemic far from the state and the people.
