Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has relaxed the curfew imposed on Lagos State with effect from Saturday, October 24, 2020.

He recently revealed that as from tomorrow, Lagosians will be free to move around from 8am to 6pm.

According to him, he has also begun the clean-up of the city because that needs to happen after the several roadblocks and tyres burns during the #EndSARS protests across the state.

He added that Lagos State needs to heal after the recent disasters and the healing process has started.

His words, “We have decided that we are going to be easing the curfew from tomorrow morning (Saturday).

“So what that easing means is that people will be allowed to go out from 8 am to 6 pm. We have also commenced the clean-up of the city, because the city needs a whole lot of clean-up, a whole lot of roadblocks, tyres burnt on the roads, and so LAWMA is on the roads, motorists should be careful because of the roadblocks, 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 you are driving, please be careful because there are a lot of barricades

“We will look at the curfew on Saturday and Sunday, then we will come back to review by Monday. 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 advise 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.”

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is a Nigerian Police Force unit under the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police Anthony Ogbizi. Since 2012, SARS has come under controversy for being linked to acts of extortion, torture, framing and blackmail.

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad was founded in 1992 by former police commissioner Simeon Danladi Midenda. The major reason SARS was formed was when Col. Rindam, a Nigerian Army Colonel was killed by police officers at a checkpoint in Lagos.

SARS is one of the 14 units in the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department which was established to detain, investigate and prosecute people involved in crimes like armed robbery, kidnapping and other forms of crimes.

During its formation the Special Anti-Robbery Squad was known to operate covertly. SARS operatives were not allowed to wear police uniform, publicly carry guns or have walkie-talkies. They were given unmarked vehicles with sometimes no license plates or private plate numbers during duty.
