COVID-19: LASG to prosecute those who lied about their travel history
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu
Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu says the state will prosecute victims of COVID-19 who have lied to health professionals about their travel history.
Speaking during a press briefing on Monday, Sanwo-Olu noted that the state executive council has resolved to prosecute those found guilty, adding that four people have already been identified and will be used as scapegoats.
He described such action as dangerous, noting that it poses health risks to not only those treating them but also the general public.
“It speaks to the dignity of what we truly believe in. After coming out of this meeting, we have resolved that we are actually going to prosecute people”.
“This is not the time for people to joke about who they are or who they are not,” Sanwo-Olu said.
The governor advised Lagosians to wear locally made face masks stressing that surgical facemasks or N95 are strictly for health officials only.
He however urged Lagosians to persevere and continue to avoid unnecessary movements.
