President Muhammadu Buhari has placed a two-week curfew in Lagos and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The president made this known via a National Live Broadcast today. He revealed that this was in line with safety measures to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.

“Based on the advice of the Federal Ministry of Health and the NCDC, I am directing the cessation of all movements in Lagos and the FCT for an initial period of 14 days with effect from 11 pm on Monday, 30th March 2020. This restriction will also apply to Ogun State due to its close proximity to Lagos and the high traffic between the two States.”
