Apparently disturbed by the ongoing protests by the #EndSARS protesters which appear to have been been hijacked by hoodlums, Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state.

Mr Sanwo-Olu, in series if tweets via @jidesanwoolu, posited that no responsible government will watch and allow anarchy to reign supreme.

The tweets read:

“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.”

Prompt News reports that Lagos has been the epicentre of the #EndSARS protests targeted at ending all forms of police brutality across the country.
