Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has come out to beg Lagos State Governor, Sanwo-Olu to relax coronavirus restrictions. She recently revealed this on her social media account, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, the curfew is affecting businesses that operate at night, and policemen won’t stop extorting from people who move around 12am to 4am.
The movie star added that lounge, bar and club owners in the state are really suffering at the moment, and it is affecting the lives of the owners negatively.
Her words, “@jidesanwoolu please sir, can you kindly address this 12am – 4am curfew is there still curfew in Lagos & why? is it that coronavirus moves between 12am – 4am or is there another reason why? please I’m asking on behalf of all lounge, bar and club owners in Lagos, we are running into serious debt & loss, a lot of us are closing down & it’s affecting lives & family, we need answers muhammadubuhari, @profosinbajo.”
“The @policenglagos @nigeriapoliceforce are also using this 12am – 4am as an opportunity to collect bribe from us, it’s alarming that one cannot move freely in Lagos state once it’s 12am ….. the police are always @ lekki 2nd roundabout blocking us & collecting birbe before we can pass, I run a lounge, bar & restaurant so I go home late everyday & I have to bribe them to pass, when dey no be tollgate……. it’s really getting annoying & irritating, please kindly address this.”
