The governor of Lagos state declares the curfew following the violence around the state. A police officer alleged at orile iganmu division police station,this morning the police officer killed a boy on a peacefully protest that warranted the peaceful protesters to react .That was the cause of burning the police stations around the area. Apex reporters was present at the scene.
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.
Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu
Governor, Lagos State
