Executive Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu.

The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has imposed a 24-hour curfew on Lagos State following the outbreak of violent protests, riding under the wings of EndSARS on Tuesday morning.

The Governor ordered that the curfew takes effect from 5pm on Tuesday October 2020.

“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,” he said.
