The ongoing curfew imposed by Lagos Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, would now take effect from 9pm as against the earlier scheduled 4pm, to allow residents stuck in traffic jams arrive their homes on time.
This was announced by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, today.
Recall that Sanwo-Olu announced the curfew, earlier today, via his Twitter Account.
Condemning the hijacking of the protests by hoodlums, he said, “Dear Lagosians, 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.”Follow us on social media
