“We May Extend Lockdown …” Says Sanwo-Olu
Lagos Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared the state may extend the ongoing 14-day lockdown.
During a media briefing on Saturday, Sanwo-Olu said the lockdown would be extended depending on the situation of things, adding that the number of patients discharged in Lagos had risen to 24.
According to the Nation reports, almost 50 % of the 209 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Nigeria are recorded in Lagos.
He said: “If there’s a need to extend the lockdown, I will. We got one discharged patient today who 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’.”
