Lagos overnight denies $ 500,000 fine for COVID-19 criminals

The Lagos state government has denied reports that it will impose fines on curfew violators from 12 to 4 a.m. on December 31, 2020, in the amount of 20,000 to 500,000 N, according to Igbere TV.

The government’s statement, posted on Twitter on Wednesday, said the Commissioner for Information and Strategy Gbenga Omotoso did not make such a statement.

The government urged residents to comply with COVID-19 protocols.

The statement says:

“LASG’s attention was drawn to an online news report that cited Information and Strategy Commissioner Mr. Gbenga Omotoso as saying that curfew violators would be fined between N20,000 and N500,000. December 31, 2020 This is inaccurate and misleading.

“The government is advising residents to comply with COVID-19 protocols because the number of cases is on the rise. The role of faith-based organizations in the fight against the pandemic is well known.

“The Christian Association of Nigeria has issued a statement on how churches should conduct their night services.

“The Sanvo-Olu administration maintains a harmonious relationship with faith-based organizations and has confidence in their leaders’ ability to enforce COVID-19 protocols amid the hype about cross-services.”
