The 12 am to 4 am curfew imposed by the Federal Government to curb the spread of COVID19 remains. Lagosians are free to go about their businesses without any hindrance whatsoever. Security agencies will continue to discharge their duties.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu thanks security agencies for their efforts in restoring peace to our troubled communities. He commends Lagosians for observing the curfew and ensuring the return of normalcy. The Governor urges 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.”
