Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who earlier announced the imposition of a 24-hour curfew on Tuesday afternoon, October 20, 2020, in the wake of the unrest in the state has disclosed that it might be eased by Friday, October 23, 2020.
The governor said the easing of the curfew was necessary for Lagos residents to restock food supplies and other essential commodities.
“Once we see the streets are cleared up and all the agitation and high nerves have gone down, we might slow down the curfew by tomorrow (Friday) or next tomorrow (Saturday) at the latest,” he said on Thursday morning, October 22, 2020.
In a recent turnout of events, hoodlums had taken advantage of the #EndSARS protests against police brutality and extrajudicial killings to wreak havoc and cause mayhem in the state.
The situation was further worsened when soldiers, in a bid to disperse the protesters at the Lekki toll gate, opened fire on the youths.
