Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Executive Governor of Lagos State

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state effective today, Tuesday, October 20 at 4pm.

 

The governor made this known in a statement while lamenting that the protests against police brutality and extrajudicial killings had morphed into violence.

 

He said, “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.”
