The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control via its Twitter handle said, “Fourteen new cases of #COVID19 have been reported in Nigeria; nine in Lagos and five in FCT. As at 09:30 pm Sunday March 29th, there are 111 confirmed cases of #COVID19 reported in Nigeria with 1 death.”
Buhari, a month after the country recorded the first COVID-19 case, spoke on the pandemic on Sunday.
The President said the majority of the cases in the country were concentrated in Lagos and the FCT or came from persons who passed through the two cities.
In the case of Ogun, he said its proximity to Lagos, necessitated that it should also be locked down to control movements.
The President stated, “Based on the advice of the Federal Ministry of Health and the NCDC, I am directing the cessation of all movements in Lagos and the FCT for an initial period of 14 days with effect from 11pm on Monday, 30th March 2020. This restriction will also apply to Ogun State due to its close proximity to Lagos and the high traffic between the two states.
