Court Declares Restriction Of Movement During Lagos State’s Environmental Sanitation Illegal

A Federal High Court in Lagos has declared the restriction of citizens’ movement during the monthly Lagos enviromental sanitation exercise as unlawful and has voided the power of the Lagos state government to arrest any citizen found moving between time allotted for the exercise.

In a judgement delivered on Monday, Justice Mohammed Idris 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 enviromental sanitation exercise is observed.
