Lagos Shut Down Clubs, 566 Arrested, 502 Convicted As Covid19 wave again

Amidst the recent corona virus second wave in Lagos State not less than 32 Clubs , 566 persons have been arrested and 502 convicted for breaching COVID-19 regulations and endangering people

The presiding magistrates have also been asked by the Lagos State Prosecutors that anyone caught violating the COVID-19 regulations should engage in a compulsory test for the virus

The Lagos State Ministry of Justice on January 14 got a letter in reference to the violators of the COVID-19 regulations

In the letter a concerned lawyer and member of the Body of Benchers, Mr Kunle Uthman added that the government is supporting the people breaking the regulations set down for the virus because it is “business as usual” in the state

The Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Moyosore Onigbanjo, SAN addressed him and disregarded his claims saying it’s all misconceptions with no proof that some LASG officials flouts the COVID-19 regulations

Mr Moyosore Onigbanjo also made it known that “A plan to construct three oxygen plants was launched and on the 8th of January 2021 and “a first oxygen plant was made available in Yaba which is capable of producing 60 large cylinders a day of high-grade medical oxygen.”

He explained more that any COVID-19 regulations violators tested positive are immediately taken into isolation considering the request to the magistrates by the Lagos State Prosecutors

He added that only private labs charge for COVID-19 test as it is available for free in all state hospital and sample centres in the state and the LASG are making plans on making the vaccine available for use for the people in the state

Relating to holding of events all event planners are asked to obtain clearance from the Lagos State Safety Commission (lasgsafetyreg.com) for all events and ensure that any planned gatherings do not exceed the prescribed number, as clubs and other lounges are still to be closed as stated by the Governor during a press conference on December 18 (even whilst recovering from the virus) and no event should hold without proper clearance.
