Governor anwo-Olu

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state has announced a 24-hour curfew in parts of Lagos state.

Sanwo-Olu who spoke via his twitter handle on Tuesday shortly after a Police station was set ablaze in Orile 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.”
