LAWMA to clean up the city
Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu on Friday eased the 24-hr curfew it imposed on the state in the wake of the violence that the engulfed the #EndSARS protests across the state.
Sanwo-olu announced this while briefing the media on recent events in the state on the #EndSARS protests and the Lekki Toll Gate alleged massacre.
The Governor stated that having analysed the security situation in the state, though there are still pockets of violence in some areas, it is safe to ease the curfew.
Consequently, the Governor announced that people will be allowed to go about their businesses between 8am and 6pm.
According to Sanwo-olu ” We have also commenced the clean-up of the city, because the city needs a whole lot of clean-up, a whole lot of road blocks, tyres burnt on the roads, and so LAWMA is on the roads. Motorists should be careful because of the road blocks, in case LAWMA had not finished clearing the roads. Please, if you don’t need to go out, please stay at home, but if you must go out and your are driving, please be careful because are a lot of barricades”
Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu said the Lagos State Government will watch the turn out of things on Saturday and Sunday, then we will come back to review the curfew by Monday. He said Lagos needs to heal and the healing process has started.
“From now, moving forward is to say that we need to continue to heal ourselves, we need to continue to talk to ourselves, and we need to advice and implore some of our citizens that are still using social media to instigate, or to ask people to stand up again, or to incite the citizens, young men, I need to say that enough is enough, we need to heal ourselves”.
