Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has relaxed the curfew he imposed on Lagos State earlier this week after some elements made efforts to cause unrest in the state.

On Tuesday, the Governor imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state following the hijacking of the peaceful #EndSARS protest by some hoodlums.

He later extended the dusk to dawn movement restriction to 72 hours and despite this, several properties belonging to the government and private individuals were destroyed by thugs.

On Friday, the Governor embarked on a tour of the places touched by the hoodlums and after the exercise, he announced that the curfew has been relaxed.

According to his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, who announced the ease in the movement restriction, residents of the state can now move around between 8am and 6pm from tomorrow, Saturday, October 24, 2020.

“Governor @jidesanwoolu relaxes curfew from tomorrow, Saturday. Curfew now 8am to 6pm,” Mr Akosile posted on his Twitter page on Friday evening.
