The Lagos State Government has lifted the curfew it imposed as a result of the recent #EndSARS protest, which turned violent and led to loss of lives and destruction of property, after being hijacked by hoodlums.
In a statement released by the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotosho, the government stated that although the curfew had been lifted, 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 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 commissioner stated.
He added: “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.”
