You don’t have to sit home during the monthly Saturday Enivronmental Sanitation anymore

The Federal High Court
in Lagos has nullified the unlawful restriction of Lagosians during the monthly
Lagos environmental sanitation exercise, every last Saturday of the month.

Justice Mohammed Idris
delivered a judgment on Monday, March 16, ruling that restriction of movements
for the sake of environmental sanitation amounts to violation of the citizens’
right to personal liberty and freedom of movement as protected by sections 35
and 41 of the Constitution.
This ruling voids the
power of the Lagos State Government and its agents to arrest any citizen found
moving between 7am and 10am  during the
sanitation period.
