Lagos Residents Jogging During Lockdown Sentenced To 14 Days Of Quarantine
34 persons have been sentenced to one month of community service and 14 days of quarantine for violating the social distancing directives of the Lagos State government.
The Lagos and federal governments declared a 14-day stay-at-home order for residents in March, in order to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak in Africa’s most populous nation.
The federal capital city of Abuja and the southwestern state of Ogun were also thrown into the lockdown mix.
However, some Lagosians have been disobeying the directive and have been photographed hitting streets for exercises and workouts.
Similar images have also emerged from Abuja, 8 days into the lockdown regime.
