Lagos State To Extend Lockdown Order, See Why

Due to the sudden surge of coronavirus cases in Lagos, Governor Sanwo-Olu has hinted at a possible extension of the ongoing lockdown in the state.

The Governor made this disclosure during a media parley with journalists, where he said the lockdown would be extended depending on the situation of things, adding that the number of patients discharged in Lagos had risen to 24.

HSENations reports that of 224 confirmed cases in Nigeria, 25 have been discharged.

The governor, however, assured residents that palliatives would be provided.

He said, “If there’s a need to extend the lockdown, I will. We got one discharged patient today (recovered from the coronavirus). We are going to sit down with the committee that is working on the community markets and see if we can announce more next week.”

On alleged assault of residents by enforcement agents, Sanwo-Olu said, “There’s been no backlash on the handling of people by the security operatives so far. I always tell them to ‘wear a human face’.”
