Due to the ongoing #EndSARS protest in Lagos, the State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew across the state until further notice.
The state governor made known in a statement on Tuesday, October 20th.
Sanwo-Olu said that the curfew decision had to be taken by the government following the damages the #EndSARS protest has caused within the state.
Part of the tweet reads that “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.”
The governor in tweet added that the curfew is to take effect from 4pm, today, October 20, 2020.
“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,” he added.
