FG insinuate on fresh lockdown as Nigerians scorn directives

The Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu has warned Nigerians of risking another lockdown if they continue to go against some health guidelines.

He said that the Federal government might be forced to impose another lockdown if there are more cases of coronavirus.

He further stated that;
                   “If the cases of the virus infection increases, there will be almost no choice left for the leadership of the country than to ask all of us to go back into our homes.

“So for the benefit of coming out to reopen parts of the economy, there is a price to pay which is to reorganise ourselves to do this safely.”

Recall that the lockdown in Lagos, Ogun and FCT ended on Monday as residents were allowed to resume work.

However, DAILY POST gathered that some commercial buses, popularly known as ‘Danfo’ flouted the Lagos State transportation guidelines. Pictures and videos of Nigerians overcrowding in public places also emerged online.
