Lagos Gov’t seals 11 event centres, nightclubs for violation of COVID-19 protocols

11 facilities including Event Centres, Lounges and Night Clubs have been sealed by the Lagos state government after they were found guilty of violating the COVID-19 protocols in the state.

The Director-General of the Lagos State Safety Commission (LSC), Lanre Mojola confirmed the development to journalists.

Mojola said though the affected event centres originally informed the agency of their intention to organise parties and events, they failed to meet the expectations of the agency on complying with COVID-19 protocols.

According to Mojola, the number of persons approved for the events centres was outnumbered with what the officials met on the ground when they visited the places at the weekend.

He said that those facilities were sealed for non-compliance with COVID -19 Health Protection Regulations of the State and Federal Government.
