Court Nullifies Movement Restriction Duringlagos Monthly Sanitation by blackfase(m): 11:37am On Mar 16, 2015
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 enviromental sanitation exercise is
observed.

We are gradually getting there. Big up to the judiciary on this one.

A judge that understands the sovereign rights of every citizen. There is hope for Nigeria.

Well, you are now welcomed to a dirtier & stinking lagos. Enviromental saturaday is the only time some streets get swept or gabbage get disposed in lagos.

Oga judge more grease to your elbow. By weight of probability, it is more beneficial to have this 3 hours movement restriction every month than not having!!! Common sense approach is superbly superior to this judgement!!!

I wonder why our judges can't use common sense on some issue.......

Please, I beg to differ while I still recognise your opinion.

As a matter of fact the Judge should be commended. Apart from the law violating our basic human rights as enshrined in our Constitution, that decree has never been effective in these modern times. Society has moved on and our laws should also be updated.

I'm yet to see any other nation where sanitation activities are limited to one measly Saturday every month, instead being a daily exercise.

Lagos can only get dirtier if there's no new relevant legislation after the current one is annulled. No nation stands still every last Saturday of every month for Environmental sanitation. It's an archaic pattern of environmental management.

State governments should employ and adequately train environmental sanitation officers who shall daily identify and sanction environmental offenders.
