Following the recent violence and attack by violent protesters and hoodlums in lagos,the Governor of Lagos State,Gov Babajide Sanwoolu has declared a 24hr state of emergency in the state.
He said,” 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.”
The recent attack at Amukoko area and Orile Iganmu area few hours ago, and the loss of lives and properties since the beginning of the ENdSARS protest have been in contrast to the purpose of the protest.
He added that,”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.”
The Lagos State Government have stationed security men in strategic places to mentain law and order .
The 24hrs curfew will take effect from 4pm today as nobody, except essential service providers and first responders must be found on the streets.
