Sanwo-Olu orders closure of all schools in Lagos due to #EndSARS protests

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has ordered the immediate closure of all private and public schools in Lagos state due to #EndSARS protests.

The order was contained in a statement signed by Kayode Abayomi, head, public affairs, ministry of education, as tension escalates by the #EndSARS protests.

Commissioner for education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, who issued the directive on Monday, 19 October 2020, said the safety of the pupils/students, parents and all staff working in schools is paramount at this critical period.

She, however, advised parents to keep an eye on their wards and not allow them to be used as willing tools in the hands of those who might want to hijack the protests to unleash mayhem on the society.

The commissioner also encouraged schools to utilise other means of distance teaching and learning i.e radio, television and online media as they have been doing during the recent COVID-19 lockdown.

According to Adefisayo, a new date of resumption for all classes will be announced as soon as possible.
