The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has been forced to impose a compulsory 24 hours curfew in Lagos State. This he claims is due to the peaceful #EndSars protest that has been hijacked by hoodlums in the state.
According to the governor, the #EndSars protest has turned into a monster and it has claimed lots of lives and properties in the state.
Read all he wrote below;
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.”
