The Lagos state governor's spokesman, Gboyega Akosile, said: "The curfew will not end tomorrow".

Thousands of Nigerians demanding an end to alleged police brutality have taken to the streets every day for almost two weeks across the country.

On Monday, Amnesty International said at least 15 people have been killed since the demonstrations began.

Other regions are also imposing curfews after two weeks of protests that began over a now-disbanded police unit. They said police opened fire on protesters, wounding several.

Nigerian authorities said Tuesday that almost 2,000 inmates had broken out of jail after crowds attacked two prisons, while officials announced a 24-hour curfew in the megacity of Lagos in an attempt to quell the unrest stemming from two weeks of protests against police brutality. Only essential workers were exempted.

Early in the protests, police fired on protesters in the Surulere area of Lagos and elsewhere.

In the capital Abuja, crowds were dispersed by security forces on Tuesday.

Mohammed Adamu's announcement came as an indefinite 24-hour curfew was imposed in the commercial hub of Lagos.

The governor also asked them to remain calm and not allow criminals, who he said have hijacked the #EndSARS protest, to succeed in their evil plan of turning the state upside down.

The protesters have, however, not yielded ground despite curfews in some states as they continue to occupy the streets and call for other institutional reforms.
