Court nullifies movement restriction during Lagos monthly sanitation

A Federal High Court in Lagos has declared as unlawful the restriction of citizens’ movement during the monthly Lagos enviromental sanitation exercise.

Justice Mohammed Idris, in a judgment delivered on Monday, held that such restriction of movement, in the name of sanitation, amounted to a violation of the citizens’ right to personal liberty and freedom of movement protected by sections 35 and 41 of the Constitution.

He therefore voided the power of the Lagos State Government and its agent to arrest any citizen found moving between 7am and 10am on the last Saturday of every month when the environmental sanitation exercise is observed.
