Lagos Govt Imposes 24-hour Curfew Amid Hoodlums Attack

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos has imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state as suspected hoodlums continue to unleash mayhem under the guise of EndSARS protest.

The decision was announced on Tuesday, October 20, in a series of tweets by the Lagos state governor following repeated attacks by thugs which led to theĀ burning and destruction of Apapa-Igamu police station.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, who noted that the protest has been hijacked, said the government will not watch and allow anarchy in Lago state.

He declared that the curfew will take effect by 4pm on Tuesday, further adding that only essential service providers and first responders must be found on the streets.

In his words:

“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.
