Lagos denounces videos inciting ethnic conflicts

Consequent to the shootings and killings of the #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Tollgate by suspected soldiers on Tuesday night, the Lagos governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has ordered the shut down of governance in the state for three days.

Sanwo-Olu, who also apologised to the youths and their parents over the killing incident, equally directed that flags be flown half-mast in all public places across the state for three days in honour of the dead.
