The United States Government has reacted to the 24-hours curfew in Lagos State.

Recall that the state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday declared the curfew following violent activities that saw three police stations burnt in the state.

The US Government in the statement charged its citizens to be vigilant amid the protest against police brutality.

The US Mission in Nigeria in a statement posted on its official website said, “although most demonstrations are peaceful, some have become violent and have shut down major thoroughfares and bridges.”

“Some police stations have been targeted.”

“Lagos State closed all schools indefinitely as of October 19 due to protests and implemented a 24-hour curfew starting at 4pm on October 20.”

It added that “Consulate General Lagos is closed for the rest of today and tomorrow.”

Some of the actions US citizens have been advised to take include: Avoid the areas of the demonstration(s), exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings or protests, keep a low profile, be aware of your surroundings and monitor local media for updates.
