Lagos State Government on Wednesday stated that it will request Muslim leaders to stop Friday service (Juma’at) and Sunday church service.
The State Commissioner for Information, Gbenga Omotoso made this known at a press briefing.
He said the religious leaders will be advised to shut down services in the interest of the public.
Omotoso said this a few hours after Lagos recorded its seventh coronavirus case.
“We are all aware that the Federal Government asked the National Youth Service Corps to shut down orientation camps; yesterday (Tuesday) the Commissioner for Home Affairs said there will be a meeting with religious leaders today (Wednesday).
“It is going to be suggested to them to maybe stop Friday and Sunday services – wherever we have large gatherings.
“Going by the new development, I am sure they will be advised to shut down the services in the interest of the public and all of us. I am sure they are going to comply,” Omotosho said.
