The Edo State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew across the state, ChannelsTv reports.

In a statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogien said the curfew will take effect from 4:00 pm, October 19, 2020, till further notice, Channels reports. 

He noted that, the curfew was due to the incidents of vandalism and attacks carried out by hoodlums who hijacked the End SARS protests. 

"This decision has become necessary because of the very disturbing incidents of vandalism and attacks on private individuals and institutions by hoodlums in the guise of the End SARS protests. 

"While the government of Edo State respects the rights of its citizens to undertake legitimate protests, it cannot sit idly when hoodlums have taken laws into their hands to cause mayhem on innocent citizens and the state."
