Just In: Lagos State Government announces 24-hour curfew in the state! Details👇

Few hours after suspected hoodlums set the Divisional Police Headquarters building at Orile Iganmu on fire, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has now declared a 24-hour curfew in the state from 4 pm today.

According to him, the decision was taken to forestall a further break down of law and order as he alluded that some miscreants are now committing atrocities in the state under the guise of the #EndSARS protest.

The Governor made this announcement via his verified Twitter handle a moment ago.

He said;

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 4 pm today, 20th October 2020. Nobody, except essential service providers and first responders, must be found on the streets.
