Sanwoolu declares 24 hour curfew with effect from 4pm today

As the protests in Lagos State lingers and obviously raises concern over the influx of hoodlums on some of the street in the state stressing into violence and other issues the Governor of Lagos State has in line declared a 24 hour curfew with immediate effect from 4pm today.

He shares this via his Instagram account stating,

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 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.
