FG withdraws soldiers from Lagos streets

The Federal Government on Tuesday ordered the withdrawal of soldiers from the streets of Lagos.

The soldiers were deployed last week to prevent further protests against the removal of fuel subsidy, a move which generated strong criticisms from the state government and residents.

Lagos state Governor, Babatunde Fashola denied allegations that the soldiers were requested by the state government.
