Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has warned churches against violating the 12am to 4am curfew imposed by the federal government, as part of efforts to curb the spread of the corona virus.
He said this on Thursday while responding to questions on annual cross-over services organised by churches on December 31 — the services are usually scheduled to run into the early hours of January.
“There are not meant to be gatherings. We’ve said so. The curfew that has been set by NCDC, PTF is still active. From 12 midnight to 4am, there is a national curfew and that has to be respected.There are no night vigils in any form. The instructions are there; all of the restrictions are still in place that have been set by PTF and also Lagos state commission and all of the rules that have been set. So, there are no vigils anywhere,” he said.
