The Lagos State Government has lifted the curfew imposed on the state with immediate effect.

This was disclosed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in a statement issued by the state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, on Saturday.

He stated, “The curfew imposed on Lagos State after the hijack of the peaceful #EndSARS protests has been lifted immediately but 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 business 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 Sanwo-Olu appreciated the security agencies for their efforts in restoring peace to our troubled communities and commended Lagosians for observing the curfew and ensuring the return of normalcy.

“I urge 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,” he added.
