For flouting the new lockdown relaxation guidelines for operators of hotels, clubs, and other entertainment outfits, the Lagos State Government has shut two facilities in Badagry West Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of the state.

ConsumerConnect learnt that the facilities include Maggi Hotel and Tambari Theatre Art (Night Club).

Mr. Solomon Bonu, Special Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State on Tourism, Arts and Culture, in a tweet via the state’s official Twitter account, stated that amid the lockdown, the nightclub has become a place for immoral activities.

Bonu said: “It was also discovered that there is a high level of immorality going on in these places.

“The Night Club has become home for strippers, drug barons, and all sorts of mischief.” The Special Adviser expressed displeasure with the unlawful practices by the management of the two facilities.

The guidelines by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture were not followed in spite of several advocacies by the state government, he stated.

According to him, legal action will be instituted against the owners of the hotel and night club to ensure appropriate sanctions are meted out.

He, therefore, pleaded with residents to provide useful information that would assist in discovering other hotels and clubhouses still operating in different parts of Lagos despite restrictions by the state government.

Meanwhile, Lagos discharged 21 more recovered COVID-19 patients Sunday, May 10, 2020.

Announcing the development in a tweet on his verified handle @jidesanwoolu, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who is the Incident Commander said the recovered patients who are Nigerians, include four males and 17 females.

The governor stated: “Dear Lagosians, I come bearing good news.  Today, 21 #COVID19 patients; 4 females and 17 males, all Nigerians have been discharged from our isolation facilities to reunite with the society.”

Governor Sanwo-Olu further said that with the recent development, the state has now successfully managed and discharged 469 COVID-19 patients.

Sanwo-Olu added while the discharge of the patients is a piece of cheering news, Lagosians “must continue to practice hand hygiene, wear a mask and physically distance ourselves when outdoors.

“If we continue to do the right things and obey the stipulated public health safety guidelines, together we can break the chain of transmission of #COVID19.”
