Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has declared a 24-hour curfew in the State starting from 4pm today 20th October 2020.

This is coming after Suspected hoodlums disguising as #EndSARS protesters on Tuesday set the Apapa Iganmu Police Station in Lagos State on fire.

The governor in a post on Twitter noted that the protest against police brutality has degenerated into a monster that is threatening the well being of our society.

Sanwo-Olu in series of tweets wrote, “Dear Lagosians, 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.”
