Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has announced the easing of the curfew imposed on Lagos state over repeated attacks on facilities by suspected thugs wreaking havoc under the guise of EndSARS protest.

The governor made the announcement on Friday evening, October 23, during a press conference in the state. Legit.ng recalls that Sanwo-Olu imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state as suspected hoodlums continued to unleash mayhem under the guise of EndSARS protest. The decision was announced on Tuesday, October 20, in a series of tweets by the Lagos state governor following repeated attacks by thugs which led to the burning and destruction of Apapa-Igamu police station. Announcing the curfew, Governor Sanwo-Olu, who noted that the protest was already hijacked, declared that the government would not watch and allow anarchy in Lagos. But while speaking on Arise TV on Thursday, October 22, the governor had hinted that the curfew might be relaxed soon. In a subsequent development on Friday, the governor announced the relaxation of the curfew, saying Lagos state “needs to heal.”

Sanwo-Olu said the decision was made after close consultation with “various levels of security” stakeholders in the state despite “pocket of insecurity.” “We still have a pocket of insecurity we need to deal with, just pocket to restore normalcy. We have decided that we are going to ease the curfew. ” For emphasis, people will be allowed to go out from 8am in the morning to 6pm in the evening. We have also commenced the clean up of the city. I appeal to our motorists to be careful. Drive with a lot of caution because there are still barricade. We will look at the curfew in Saturday and Sunday.. . Lagos needs to heal. And the healing has started.” Meanwhile, with Lekki shooting still gaining momentum amid floodgates of reactions globally, Governor Sanwo-Olu has lifted the lids on the alleged removal of the CCTV camera prior to the toll gate incident.

Speaking on Arise TV on Thursday, October 22, the Lagos state governor stated that “nobody ordered” the removal of the camera and turning off the light contrary to the circulation on the social media.

ASUU might end strike as FG shifts position on meeting demands.

The federal government has agreed to provide an additional sum of N15 billion to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

This means a cumulative sum of N65 billion has been provided for the settlement of the lecturers’ allowances and the revitalization of the university system. During a 7-hour meeting on Friday, November 20, it was also agreed that ASUU will be exempted from the Integrated Personnel Payroll System (IPPIS) which has been generating hiccups against the end of the strike action. Legit.ng notes that this is coming weeks after the federal government insisted that the lecturers’ body could not determine how it should be paid to its employers. Reading the communique at the end of negotiations, minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige disclosed that the federal government shifted ground on some demands of ASUU.


The minister also stated that the salary arrears of the body’s members from February to June 2020 will be paid using the old salary payment platform, GIFIMS.
