The Lagos State Government has said yesterday, that the state is not on lockdown, despite the stringent measures and directives.
This was revealed in a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, in which the rumour that Governor Babajide Sanw-Olu had ordered the lockdown of the state was described as erroneous.
“The impression created by such reports is erroneous; Lagos is not on lockdown despite the stringent measures introduced by the government,” he said.
Omotoso added that Sanwo-Olu, in his capacity as the incident commander, only urged private sector establishments to introduce measures that will support the government’s efforts at curtailing the spread of COVID-19.
