Governor of Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has declared a 24 hour-curfew throughout Lagos State with effect from 4 pm this Tuesday.
In message on his Twitter page, Governor Sanwo-Olu said only the essential staff should be found on the road.
This decision to impose the 24 hour-curfew came few hours after a group of people suspected to be hoodlums burnt down the police station situated in Orile-Iganmu Local Government Area of Lagos State.
Eyewitnesses said the incident occurred around 09.45 am.
The police station services both Iganmu community in Apapa Iganmu and Orile Community in Coker/Aguda.
It is unclear the demands of the hoodlums who set the police station ablaze.
Following the destruction of the police station, many #EndSARS protesters have taken to social media to condemn the action of the hoodlums.
They insist they have nothing to do with the incident noting that there was no #EndSARS protest in Orile area of Lagos State on Tuesday.
See tweets containing photos and videos from the incident have become talk of the day.
The declaration of the 24 hour-curfew came less than 24 hours after the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki imposed similar curfew yesterday.
