For the second time, the Lagos State government has reviewed the hours of movement restriction in the state for its residents.
On Tuesday, October 20, 2020, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced a 24-hour curfew in the state after some hoodlums were using the opportunity of the #EndSARS protest to attack Lagosians and some of the demonstrators.
Thereafter, he made the curfew 72-hour before announcing on Friday evening that it would be relaxed from Saturday, October 24, 2020, to 4pm – 8am.
On Sunday night, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotoso, announced in a statement that the Governor has again eased the lockdown to 8pm to 6am.
This action was taken after Mr Sanwo-Olu reviewed the situation in the state with his team, including the security operatives.
“The curfew in Lagos State has been reviewed. Restriction time is now 8pm to 6am.
“Lagosians are enjoined to plan their journey times as they go about their lawful businesses,” a part of the brief statement issued by the Commissioner last night said.
Meanwhile, the state government further disclosed that all public and private schools will remain closed indefinitely.
The schools were shut on Tuesday after the protests were showing signs of being hijacked by thugs.
In the statement issued on Sunday by Mr Omotoso, he noted that, “All public and private schools remain shut till further notice.”
It would be recalled that for more than six months, the education sector in Nigeria was paralysed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The schools were only allowed to resume last month and this was just for some classes. The full reopening of schools in Lagos State was allowed this month.
