Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos State Governor, has suspended all government activities for 72 hours because of the growing violence in the state.

The governor made this known on Wednesday during his live broadcast.

This follows eyewitnesses claim that armed Nigerian soldiers opened fire on #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate area of Lagos on Tuesday, 20 October.

“Fellow Lagosians, in the sensitive mood and in the mood of the nation at this time, I have directed further that we have an immediate suspension of all state activities for the next three days, except those that are connected to the security activities in the state and the management of the current issues.

“I have also directed that at all public buildings within our reach that we lower the flag for the next three days as a mark of respect and solidarity for the protests,” his statement read.

It is noted that yesterday, Babajide Sanwo-Olu imposed a 24-hour curfew in Lagos State.
