The Lagos state governor has said that the controlled easing of the lockdown in the state will last six weeks, in three phases of two weeks each.
He said “The goal is to enable us achieve a balance between the protection of lives and the sustenance of livelihoods. Following each phase, the Federal and State Governments will review the situation and further adjust the response.”
He said that all movements into Lagos and out of Lagos remained prohibited, except for people with essential services.
The state government set up the telephone hotlines to enable Lagos residents report anybody seen flouting its guidelines as the state begin easing lockdown.

“We are encouraging all Lagosians to be on the lookout for those who flout the orders and directives on easing of the lockdown. They should be reported through the hotlines by direct calls or text messages. We will investigate all reports, and ensure that we take appropriate action. Penalties and sanctions will be accordingly meted out to all those found contravening the directives,” he said.
