Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has imposed a 24-hour curfew on Lagos.
The curfew, the governor said, was imposed to arrest the spate of anarchy generated by Nigerians who are demonstrating against police brutality.
The governor, however, excluded essential service workers like doctors, journalists, electricity providers, petrol station attendants from the curfew.
But Revolution Now convener and former presidential candidate Omoyele Sowore has added another item to the list.
“All Lagos based #EndSARS protesters must note that protest against oppression, tyranny, bad governance is essential service,” Sowore said on Tuesday.
“All men and women of good conscience protesting should resume at their duty posts and continue their services to the nation!”
But investigate journalist ‘Fisayo Soyombo, who once led Sowore’s Sahara Reporters, had another idea.
“The time has come for frontline EndSARS campaigners to rethink their strategies,” Soyombo said.
“The measures to crush the protests are both desperate and devilish, so the campaigners need to get creative. To dine with the devil, you need a long spoon. Shelve physical protests; re-strategise.”
