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: “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 statement added.
