Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has dismissed rumours of a curfew in the state.
A disclaimer posted on the State Government’s website, lagosstate.gov.ng, said that “the Lagos State Governor dropped the idea of imposing a curfew in the state meant to allow the fumigation exercise of public space.
“Relying on experts’ advice, the Governor said the disinfectant is non toxic, noting that the exercise has commenced.”
Sanwo-Olu said: “I am pleased to note that we have taken possession of over 200 disinfecting machines, and starting today, we will be disinfecting all major highways, bus stops, markets, parks and other public areas.”
Sam Biodun Ogundipe reporting added, “The Governor had earlier said during a live press conference that if there is a need for curfew, government would not hesitate to impose it” .
“For now, everything remains the way they are,” according to the disclaimer.
