Lagos relaxes curfew, now from 8am to 6pm

About three days after the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state, the stay-at-home order has been relaxed.

The governor said with effect from Saturday October 24, people would be allowed to move around within Lagos from 8am to 6pm.

Sanwo-Olu said this during a televised press briefing at the Lagos State House in Marina.

He said, “We have decided that we are going to be easing the curfew from tomorrow (Saturday) morning; and what that easing means is that people will be allowed to go out from 8am to 6pm.

“For emphasis, from 8am tomorrow morning, you will be allowed to go out, to go wherever you wish till 6pm in the evening.”

The governor appealed to the youth in the state to stop their protest and embrace peace.

“We need to continue to talk to ourselves. Everywhere I went today, people said they want peace; we all want peace. We cannot continue to lose our population and our monuments and infrastructure,” he said.

The curfew was declared on Tuesday to avert a total breakdown of law and other, following the decision of some youths to continue protesting against police brutality and extortion even when the government had disbanded the dreaded Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police as demanded by the #EndSARS protesters.

Hoodlums, however, ignored the curfew on the first day as they attacked a number public and private property including police stations.
