Why I imposed 24-hour curfew on Lagos – Sanwo-Olu

Sanwo-Olu

Lagos state Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has called on all residents and #EndSARS protesters to abide by the 24-hour curfew he imposed to enable security agencies carryout immediate action that would deescalate issues of recent recorded violence.

Sanwo-Olu who spoke via his twitter handle, Tuesday evening, wrote,

“Imposing this curfew was difficult, especially as we have just returned from a COVID19 required lockdown. This curfew will allow security officials to immediately restore order to the state, arrest thugs and miscreants that have disrupted the peace.

“Peaceful protesters and residents of Lagos should obey the curfew and stay in their homes to allow our security forces take immediate action to de-escalate all the issues of violence occurring at this time.”

Hoodlums Tuesday morning hijacked peaceful protests by #EndSARS protesters and burnt two Police stations, killing police operatives and others.
