Why Curfew Was Relaxed In Lagos –Sanwo-Olu


Lagos State governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has relaxed the curfew imposed in Lagos State. This takes effect from Saturday, October 24, 2020.

Sanwo-Olu in a statewide broadcast on Friday evening said people are now free to move around from 8 am to 6 pm.Sanwo-Olu relax Curfew

Recall that there had been tension in the state and destruction of lives and properties as #EndSARS protesters lingered and this necessitated Sanwo-Olu to place a 24-hour curfew on Wednesday, 4pm and it was later extended.

According to Sanwo-Olu, “We have decided that we are going to be easing the curfew from tomorrow morning (Saturday).

“So what that easing means is that people will be allowed to go out from 8 am to 6 pm. We have also commenced the clean-up of the city, because the city needs a whole lot of clean-up, a whole lot of roadblocks, tyres burnt on the roads, and so LAWMA is on the roads, motorists should be careful because of the roadblocks, in case LAWMA had not finished clearing the roads.

“Please, if you don’t need to go out, please stay at home, but if you must go out and you are driving, please be careful because there are a lot of barricades

“We will look at the curfew on Saturday and Sunday, then we will come back to review by Monday. Lagos needs to heal and the healing process has started.

“From now, moving forward is to say that we need to continue to heal ourselves, we need to continue to talk to ourselves, and we need to advise and implore some of our citizens that are still using social media to instigate, or to ask people to stand up again, or to incite the citizens, young men, I need to say that enough is enough, we need to heal ourselves.”
