Lagos CP, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has directed all officers to enforce all protocols highlighted by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
Odumosu instructed his officers and men to enforce the 12 am to 4 am curfew and ensure the total closure of night clubs, bars, lounges, and event centers.
This was contained in a statement signed by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Thursday.
It comes as churches have adjusted their plans for crossover services on the night of December 31, 2020.
“The Commissioner of Police reiterated that they must enforce the use of face mask regularly at public places (markets/malls), social distancing, total closure of night clubs, bars, lounges, event centers, no social party, street carnivals, use of infra-red thermometers to check body temperature, hand sanitizers and enforcement of the imposed curfew between 12 midnight and 4 am.
“All Area Commanders and DPOs must ensure such due enforcement in their various offices across the command, noting that COVID-19 is real and we must do everything possible within our reach to halt its spread,” the statement partly read.
