The Lagos State Government has denied rumours making the round that it has imposed curfew in the state over the outbreak of coronavirus disease.
The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, made this clarification during a live press conference on Friday.
While throwing light on a report made by a national daily that the state had imposed a curfew, Akosile said the Governor dropped the initial idea of imposing a curfew in the state to allow the fumigation exercise of public space.
He, however, said that reliable experts advised the Governor against the decision saying the disinfectant is not toxic.
He noted that state government would not hesitate to impose curfew if necessary.
He said: “I am pleased to note that we have taken possession of over 200 disinfecting machines, and starting today, we will be disinfecting all major highways, bus stops, markets, parks and other public areas.
“For now, everything remains the way they are.”
