Ogun extends lock down again

Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun has announced an extension in the lockdown imposed on the state as a result of COVID-19 till May 24.

Given reason for the extension, the governor cited non-compliance by residents with safety regulations and the community spread of the virus in the state. “In view of the evidence of community transmission and poor compliance with the lockdown measures, we are constrained to extend the lockdown by another week till Sunday 24th of May.

“The current pattern of lockdown with relaxation windows from 7.00 am to 5.00 pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday continues.

“We will continue to monitor the level of compliance with the lockdown measures and incidence of community transmission and hopefully, there will be positive developments that will enable us further ease the lockdown at the end of this new lockdown period,” he said.
