But in a notice on Sunday evening by his Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, the governor said the curfew time is now between the hours of 8pm and 6am, meaning that residents can go out by 6am and return home before 8pm.

The commissioner stated, “The curfew in Lagos State has been reviewed. Restriction time is now 8 pm to 6 am.

“Lagosians are enjoined to plan their journey times as they go about their lawful businesses. All schools remain shut till further notice.”

Meanwhile, members of the Federal Executive Council from the South-West zone and governors in the zone visited Sanwo-Olu on Sunday.

The governors and the ministers were in Lagos to commiserate with Sanwo-Olu over the large-scale destruction of public and private facilities by hoodlums who had hijacked the #EndSARS protests.
