President Muhammadu Buhari has slammed a two-week curfew on the epicenter of coronavirus in Nigeria, Lagos state. Nigeria’s capital, Abuja and Ogun state will also observe the two week curfew from Monday at 11pm.
In a nationwide broadcast, the President explain that the move became necessary to curb the spread of the virus that has at least 97 confirmed cases in Nigeria.
In a broadcast on Sunday, President Buhari said, “Based on the advice of the Federal Ministry of Health and the NCDC, I am directing the cessation of all movements in Lagos and the FCT for an initial period of 14 days with effect from 11pm on Monday, 30th March 2020.
“This restriction will also apply to Ogun State due to its close proximity to Lagos and the high traffic between the two States.
“All citizens in these areas are to stay in their homes. Travel to or from other states should be postponed. All businesses and offices within these locations should be fully closed during this period.
