The Lagos State Government on Wednesday debunked claims that the state is on a lockdown following measures reeled out by government to curb spread of Coronavirus.
A statement issued by Gbenga Omotoso, Commissioner for Information and Strategy, said the attention of Government had been drawn to news reports that Lagos was on lockdown following Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s update on the steps taken to curtail the spread of Coronavirus.
“The impression created by such reports is erroneous; Lagos is not on lockdown despite the stringent measures introduced by the government.
“Mr. Governor, who is 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.
“Governor Sanwo-Olu suggested that banks should enhance their online banking services to enable their customers have transactions without visiting banking halls.
