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.
