Breaking: Lagos eases curfew; now between 6pm and 8am

The Lagos State government has relaxed the earlier imposed curfew to now be effective from 6 pm to 8 am.

The Guardian reported that the Lagos State Government has eased the 24-hour curfew, which was earlier imposed on Tuesday, 20 October 2020, and then later increased to 72 hours. The curfew will now run from 6 pm to 8 am.

This was disclosed by the Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Friday, 23 October 2020, during a press briefing at State House, Marina, after a tour of the state to inspect the level of destruction of public and private infrastructure by hoodlums.

This means residents can go out between 8 am and 6 pm with effect from tomorrow (Saturday, 24 October 2020).

Sanwo-Olu says: “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 8 am to 6 pm.

“For emphasis, from 8 am tomorrow morning, you will be allowed to go out, to go wherever you wish till 6 pm in the evening,” he says.

The governor also stated that the state needs to heal from the violence that engulfed her these past few days and declared that the healing has started.
