Gov Sanwo-olu lifts curfew
Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has totally lifted the curfew imposed on Lagos State after the hijack of the peaceful #EndSARS protests which led to looting and destruction of Properties.
This came barely 24 hours when the curfew was further relaxed from 10am to 6pm.
Meanwhile, the 12 am to 4 am curfew earlier imposed by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 to curb the spread of the pandemic remains.
This was contained in a statement on Saturday by the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotoso.
According to Sanwo-Olu, “Residents are free to go about their businesses without any hindrance whatsoever.
“Security agencies will continue to discharge their duties. Lagosians are urged to co-operate with them to maintain the status of our state as one of the most peaceful.”
The governor commended security agencies for their efforts in restoring peace to troubled communities and residents for observing the curfew and ensuring the return of normalcy.
Sanwo-Olu, therefore, urged the citizenry not to do or encourage any action that could turn back the clock, but to keep living in harmony “as we get set to rebuild our dear state and strengthen the unity that we are known for.”
