Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that the ongoing lockdown in the state might be extended if the need arises.

The Governor made this known during a media briefing on Saturday. He said the lockdown would be extended depending on the situation of things.

Sanwo-Olu also assured residents that palliatives would be provided during the lockdown.

He said, “If there’s a need to extend the lockdown, I will. We got one discharged patient today (recovered from the coronavirus).

“This is just day five. So, in the first 14 days, we still have about eight or nine days to go.”

“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,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Governor earlier announced the approval of free medical services for residents of the State.

According to him, residents will not pay to access treatments including surgeries at all the 27 General Hospitals across the State for the month of April.
