Lagos shuts markets, restaurants, gathering more than 25 persons

Lagos State Government has ordered the closure of all markets, shops and restaurants in the state, as a means of curtailing the spread of coronavirus disease.

The Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said at a press conference after the state security council meeting that  except the shop where pharmaceuticals and food items are sold no other shop will be allowed to open with  effect from Thursday, March 26.

Sanwo-Olu said that the partial lock down became necessary due to the increasing cases of Covid-19 in Lagos State, adding  that markets will be opened in various schools to ensure people have access to food.

He ordered restaurants, eateries to only offer take away and not eat-in services.

“The law enforcement agents are fully empowered to enforce the directives. Gatherings in any form must not exceed 25 persons against the earlier directive of 50 persons.” he noted.
