The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has issued fresh directive following the ban on churches and mosques by the Lagos and Ogun State Government.

Naija News recalls that the Lagos State Government on Wednesday banned any religious gathering that involves more than 50 people over the deadly Coronavirus.

The decision of the Lagos State Government was taken after a consultative meeting between the state government and religious groups.

The Government took the decision in agreement with religious leaders in the State, following the spread of the dreaded COVID-19 disease.

This is coming after Gbenga Omotosho, the Lagos State Commissioner for Information had earlier said at a briefing on Wednesday that he was certain that religious leaders would be advised to stop Friday and Sunday Services.

Reacting in a statement, the RCCG directed its branches with an average of fifty members or less, to go on with their services.

The RCCG said churches that have the capacity to run more than one service should go on making sure members do not exceed 50.
