This is coming after the state government denied news reports that Lagos was on lock down following Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s update on the steps taken to curtail the spread of Coronavirus.
Gbenga Omotoso, Commissioner for Information and Strategy, made this known in a statement issued on Wednesday.
The statement read: “The impression created by such reports is erroneous; Lagos is not on lock down 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.
”All markets that are not selling food, pharmaceutical products, water, medical equipment and other essential materials are to close down,” he said.
