#ENDSARS: Governor Sanwo-Olu has imposed a 24-hour curfew in Lagos


Lagos State Governor Sanwo-Olu has imposed a 24-hour curfew in Lagos state beginning from 4 pm today October 20.


He made this known via his social media handle.

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

Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu
Governor, Lagos State”

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state had earlier imposed a 24- hour-curfew on 19 Oct. following the jailbreak perpetrated by hoodlums who hijacked the #ENDSARS protest in the state.
