The Lagos State Government, on Wednesday, warned residents of the state to comply with all restriction measures imposed by the authorities to curb the spread of coronavirus amid the second wave of the pandemic.
It said Lagosians who violate the 12 am to 4 am curfew imposed by the Federal Government and other protocols would be fined up to N500,000 when caught.
The government stressed that all churches in the state must respect the curfew in place and avoid physical crossover services and large gatherings on December 31, 2020.
Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotoso, stated this in an interview with The PUNCH on Wednesday.
The commissioner, however, expressed optimism that religious leaders in the state would comply with the directive of the government on the crossover services.
Furthermore, the Director-General of the Lagos State Safety Commission, Lanre Mojola, said the commission would be working with men of the Lagos State Police Command to enforce all restrictions announced by the government, especially during the New Year period.
Mojola, who also spoke with The PUNCH on Wednesday, said the commission would not wait till the night of December 31, 2020 to swing to action.
