There are indications that the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, might ease the 24-hour curfew imposed on the state to curtail the arson and widespread violence that has ravaged the state on Friday.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had the curfew imposed on the state to curtail the violence might be eased by Friday.

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.

Sanwo-Olu had announced the imposition of the curfew on Tuesday afternoon in the wake of the unrest in the state.

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.
