A Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) situated in the Lekki area of Lagos State has been engulfed by fire, Naija News reports.

According to a resident, the fire broke out at bank situated on Admiralty Way in the highbrow area of the state, around some minutes past 9 pm.

Recall that security officials on Tuesday evening opened fire on peaceful protesters that overstayed the 4 pm curfew declared by the Lagos State government.

It was reported that before the shooting began, the floodlights that lighted up the area went off, throwing the area into darkness.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State had earlier on Tuesday declared a 24-hour curfew across the state.

The Governor who had fixed the curfew to start at 4 pm later released a statement extending the curfew commencement time to 9 pm.
