The Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led Lagos State Government has with immediate effect lifted the #EndSARS-imposed curfew, which was introduced after the peaceful protest was hijacked.

This was coming as the governor has also approved November 2 as the resumption date for all public servants on Grade Levels 1 to 12.

While lifting the #EndSARS-imposed curfew, the Sanwo-Olu administration explained that the 12am-4am curfew imposed by the Federal Government to curb the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) would subsist.

Encouraging Lagosians to feel free by going about their businesses without any hindrance whatsoever, the governor assured that security agencies would continue to discharge their duties.

He urged Lagosians to cooperate with law enforcement personnel to maintain the status of Lagos State as one of the most peaceful states in the country.

Sanwo-Olu appreciated “security agencies for their efforts in restoring peace to our troubled communities” and commended Lagosians for observing the curfew and ensuring the return of normalcy.

The governor urged the citizenry not to do or encourage any action that may turn back the clock, but “to keep living in harmony as we get set to rebuild our dear state and strengthen the unity that we are known for.”

Meanwhile, Sanwo-Olu has directed that all public servants on GL 1-12 should resume duty from Monday (November 2).
