LAGOS State government on Wednesday vowed to enforce the 12 am to 4 am curfew.
It urged worshippers to comply with COVID-19 protocols while observing the crossover tonight.
Commissioner for Information and Strategy Gbenga Omotoso said in a statement: “The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to an online news item that fines ranging between N20,000 and N500,000 will be imposed on violators of the Federal Government curfew on December 31, 2020. This is inaccurate and misleading.
“The government is advising residents to comply with COVID-19 protocols because the cases are rising. The role of religious organisations in fighting the pandemic is well noted.
“The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has issued a statement on how churches should conduct their watch-night services.
“The Sanwo-Olu administration has maintained a harmonious relationship with religious organisations and has confidence in the ability of their leaders to ensure compliance with COVID-19 protocols, amid the clamour for crossover services.”
