#EndSARS: Gov Sanwo-Olu lifts curfew on Lagos


Barely 24 hours after the Lagos State government further relaxed the curfew imposed on the state from 10pm to 6am, the state governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, yesterday, totally lifted the curfew imposed in the wake of the hijack of the peaceful #EndSARS protests with immediate effect.

However, 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 in force.

A statement by the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotoso, quoted Sanwo-Olu as saying:He stated, “The curfew imposed on Lagos State after the hijack of the peaceful #EndSARS protests has been lifted immediately but the 12 a.m. to 4 a.m. curfew imposed by the Federal Government to curb the spread of COVID-19 remains.

“Lagosians are free to go about their business 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.”
