The Lagos State Government in Nigeria has imposed a 24hrs curfew starting from 4pm 20 October 2020
This was announced to general public in a tweet message which reads….
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.
