The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared a 24-hour curfew in the state.
This comes after some hoodlums set fire to a police station at Orile Iganmu on Tuesday.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, Sanwo-Olu said his administration will not watch anarchy take over in the state.
“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,” the statement read
