Sanwo-Olu lifts curfew, says 12am-4am restriction in place


Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, has lifted the curfew imposed on the state following days of unrest.

In a statement, Gbenga Omotoso, commissioner for information, said residents are now free to go about their daily activities.

He, however, said the 12 am to 4am curfew imposed by the federal government to curb the spread of COVID-19 subsists.

“The curfew imposed on Lagos State after the hijack of the peaceful #EndSARS protests has been lifted immediately. The 12 a.m. to 4a.m. curfew imposed by the Federal Government to curb the spread of COVID-19 remains,”the statement read.

“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.

Sanwo-Olu had imposed a 24-hour curfew on October 20 owing to the outbreak of violence amid the #EndSARS protests.
