Lagos State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced this in a statement today, saying ‘only essential service providers and first responders must be found on the streets.’

‘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.
