Lagos State Government Lifts Imposed Curfew
The Lagos state government has lifted the previously imposed curfew in the state following the series of violence and unrest within the state.
The Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the Lagos State Governor on New Media, Gawat Jubril, made the announcement.
He, however, stated that the 12 am to 4 am curfew imposed by the Federal Government to control the spread of COVID-19 remains.
The statement reads,
“The curfew imposed on Lagos State after the hijack of the peaceful #EndSARS protests has been lifted immediately.
“The 12 am to 4 am curfew imposed by the Federal Government to curb the spread of COVID19 remains.
“Lagosians 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.
“Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu thanks security agencies for their efforts in restoring peace to our troubled communities. He commends Lagosians for observing the curfew and ensuring the return of normalcy.
“The Governor urges the citizenry not to do or encourage any action that may 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”.
