Hoodlums seems to have hijacked the protest across the country, as police in Orile has been set ablaze.

The incident happened today, October 20, as thugs have been seen across the protest in the country.

However, there’s no reports yet of any casualties, as EndSARS protesters accuse the government of sponsoring the protest hijack.

The Lagos state government on Tuesday, announced a 24-hour curfew until further notice following the #EndSARS protests which have turned violent.

The curfew takes effect from 4pm today, Tuesday 20, October, 2020.

The state Governor wrote on Twitter; 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.
