The Lagos State government on Friday announced a further reduction of the curfew imposed on the state as a result of the #EndSARS protests as the curfew will now be from 10.00 p.m. to 6.00 a.m.
The state government had initially imposed a 24-hour curfew in the state in the wake of the Lekki toll gate shootings and three days later, reduced it to 8.00 pm to 6.00 am., advising residents to strictly abide by the curfew order.
But on Friday evening, the state government, through its Twitter handle, @followlasg, said it has decided to review the curfew and disclosed that the curfew will now be from 10.00 p.m. to 6.00 am.
According to the state government in the series of tweets: “The Lagos State Government has announced further relaxation of the curfew imposed after the breakdown of law and order, following the hijack of the peaceful #EndSARS protests. The curfew will now be from 10 pm till 6 am.
“Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu praises Lagosians for observing the curfew, which is expected to restore normalcy in the communities. He urges all Lagosians to go about their businesses in peace, even as they shun ‘actions that can threaten our unity’.
“The governor advises purveyors of fake news to stop causing disaffection among Lagosians, who are well known for being peace-loving and friendly.”
