Lagos state Commissioner for Information, Mr Gbenga Omotosho says the state government will ask religious leaders to stop Friday (Juma’at) and Sunday service.
Omotosho at a press briefing on Wednesday said the religious leaders will be advised to shut down services in the interest of the public.
He said this a few hours after Lagos recorded its seventh coronavirus case.
We are all aware that the Federal Government asked the National Youth Service Corps to shut down orientation camps; yesterday (Tuesday) the Commissioner for Home Affairs said there will be a meeting with religious leaders today (Wednesday).
“It is going to be suggested to them to maybe stop Friday and Sunday services – wherever we have large gatherings.
“Going by the new development, I am sure they will be advised to shut down the services in the interest of the public and all of us. I am sure they are going to comply,” Omotosho said.
