Following the chaos caused by miscreants and criminals hiding under the umbrella of the ongoing peaceful #EndSARS protests to unleash mayhem in Lagos State, the state government has now declared a 24-hour curfew, starting from 4 PM today, October 20, 2020.

In a statement shared by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the curfew applies to everyone except essential service providers and first responders.

Read the statement below:

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.
