Sierra Leone on Wednesday lifted a nationwide curfew that has lasted for more than 20 days following a failed coup attempt on Nov. 26.

Announcing the decision in a public notice, the Ministry of Information and Civic Education thanked the public for their continued cooperation with the security forces to bring to justice those responsible for the failed coup attempt.

Meanwhile, the ministry urged the public to maintain collective vigilance during the festive period.

On Nov. 26, some armed individuals attacked a military barracks, a prison, and other locations in Freetown, the country’s capital, leaving more than 20 people dead.

The incident prompted the government to impose a nationwide curfew to hunt for the suspects on the loose.

Some residents said they cheered the government’s decision to lift the curfew before the festive season.
