Lagos declare 24-hour curfew

Following the raging #ENDSARS protests and demonstrations, Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared a 24-hour curfew.

Sanwo-Olu announced this on his official Twitter handle on Tuesday.

He said, I have watched with shock how what began as a peaceful #EndSARS protest has degenerated into a monster that is threatening the well-being of our society. Lives and limbs have been lost as criminals and miscreants are now hiding under the umbrella of these protests to unleash mayhem on our State.

 As a government that is alive to its responsibility and has shown a commitment to the movement #ENDSARS, we will not watch and allow anarchy in our dear state.

I, therefore, hereby impose a 24-hour curfew on all parts of the State as from 4pm today, 20th October, 2020. Nobody, except essential service providers and first responders must be found on the streets.
