The Lagos state governor Babajide Sanwo Olu has on Saturday 4th April 2020 made a public declaration that the ongoing COVID-19 Lockdown in Lagos state would be extended beyond 14 days.

Governor Sanwo Olu during a media briefing in Lagos said that the lockdown would be extended depending on the situation of things, adding that the number of patients discharged in Lagos has risen to 24.

Report available to 9News Nigeria indicates that 109 of the 209 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Nigeria were recorded in Lagos according to official record.

The governor, however, assured residents that palliatives would be provided to assuage possible hardship this might pose to Lagosians.

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’.”

Abuja and Lagos had been shut down for at least two weeks to curb the spread of COVID-19.
