#EndSARS Protesters Defy Lagos Curfew Directive (video)
Despite the state government’s imposition of 24-hour curfew, some #EndSARS protesters have refused to obey the curfew directive.
In a tweet shared by the Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Twitter, it 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.”
However, some protesters are yet to go back to their various homes and are currently on the streets of Lagos protesting.
NewsDirect can confirm that some peaceful protesters have stayed back in front of the Lagos State House of Assembly complex.
While some peaceful protesters are currently at Lekki toll gate, kneeling down and singing the National Anthem.
