Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, Saturday, said residents of the state who work in Lagos State are not permitted to move out or into the state as the lockdown eases on Monday, 4.

In a post on Facebook, Saturday afternoon, governor Dapo said the lockdown in the state ends on Sunday, May 10, as a result of the initial grace the state was granted, stressing that the use of face masks would become mandatory for everyone in public places effective May 4.

“All schools remain closed, while students will continue with their DigiClass.

“All essential service personnel will continue to work despite the lockdown.

“All public religious gatherings remain banned. All pubs, clubs, stadia, public pools, spas, gyms, salons, etc. and all assemblies of more than 15 people remain banned. Restaurants may open on the approved days for take-out meals only.

“Burials and naming ceremonies are allowed but there must not be more than 15 people including the officiating ministers.

“There is a total ban on interstate travel (outside Ogun). If you work in Lagos or any other state but you live in Ogun State, you are not allowed to go to Lagos or any other state and return to Ogun.” Governor Dapo said.

Blackboxnigeria reported earlier that, following a directive from President Muhammadu Buhari on a gradual easing of lockdown, partial lockdown would begin in Lagos on Monday, May 4, and business activities are expected to resume in the commercial center after weeks of restriction on movement.
