This is to inform you that as part of the events lined up to mark Lagos@50, the Palace of Oba of Lagos had announced an Eyo Festival scheduled to take place today,Saturday, May 20, 2017.
The procession would take off from Iga Iduganran to terminate at Tafawa Balewa Square where the various Eyo groups would be on parade. It is important that no one put on footwear whilst it is also expected that no female put on any form of head tie/gear within the vicinity of the masquerades.
Although, The Lagos State Government has assured residents and visitors of adequate security during this event, but the past rowdiness experience of Eyo Festival indicates that there will be traffic jam on Lagos Island. More so, you are strongly advised to exercise caution if you will be on the Island tomorrow. Alternatively, avoid the area if you have no serious business there.
