The Lagos State Government has announced easing of the curfew imposed on the state following the hijacking of EndSARS Protest for looting of properties.
The Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu made the announcement on Friday during a televised press briefing at the Lagos House in Marina.
Sanwo-Olu said people are allowed to go out between 8am and 6pm from Saturday. “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.”
He urged the youths in the state to stop the protest adding that everyone needs peace to survive.
He said the state can not continue to lose its population, monuments and infrastructure because hoodlums had taken advantage of the #EndSARS protests against police brutality and extrajudicial killings to wreak havoc and cause mayhem in the state.
“We need to continue to talk to ourselves. Everywhere I went today, people say they want peace, we all want peace, we can not continue to lose our population and our monuments and infrastructure,” he added.
