Head of Public Affairs, Lagos State Ministry of Education, Kayode Abayomi, has said the state may ask students to “stay at home for now” over the ongoing #EndSARS protests across the country.

This is as academic activities were affected in some schools in the state on Monday as protests against police brutality and bad governance continue.

Abayomi, told The PUNCH that the Ministry of Education is awaiting a directive from the governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to order the schools’ closure.

He said, “We are considering the option of asking the students to stay at home, for now, pending when the protests will be over.

“It is at the consideration level. We are waiting for the governor’s directive in that aspect. As soon as we get the directive to go ahead, we (can) then ask them to stay at home for now.”
