LAGOS State governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has imposed a 24 hour curfew on all parts of the state beginning from 4pm today, Tuesday, October 20, 2020. This is contained in a brief statement personally signed by the governor and made available to the media.
The governor, in the three-paragraph statement, states:
“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.”
