Lagos announces 24-hour curfew against #EndSARS protests

The Lagos state government has imposed a 24-hour curfew.

Lagos Governor Babajide Sanvo Olu, imposing a curfew, said it would take effect from 4:00 pm on Tuesday (today).

He said, “I watched in shock as what began as a peaceful protest of #EndSARS turned into a monster that threatens the well-being of our society. Lives and limbs have been lost as criminals and villains hide under the umbrella of these protests to wreak havoc in our state.

“As a government that fulfills its responsibilities and has demonstrated commitment to the #ENDSARS movement, we will not look at and tolerate anarchy in our dear state.
