Channels Television has resumed operations less than three hours after going off-air following threats of attacks on its headquarters in Lagos.

There have been attacks on private and government-owned properties across the state, following the crisis that erupted as a result of the #EndSARS protests.

Earlier on Wednesday, the television station had gone off-air after reports that hoodlums were on their way to its Lagos office, after an attack on Television Continental (TVC) in the state.

Journalists and staff of Channels Television fled the premises over fear of a mob attack.

However, checks by TheCable as of 2:10pm on Wednesday showed that the station was back online.

The TVC premises was set on fire on Wednesday, causing the station to go off-air.

Lagos Television (LTV) was also off-air at the time of this report.

Several lives have been lost, while properties across the country have been set ablaze.
