Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has extended the lockdown in the state to curb the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Naija News reports that the latest lockdown will end on May 24, 2020.

Giving reasons for the latest extension, Governor Abiodun accused Ogun residents of not complying with safety regulations.

He also stated that the community spread of the virus was another reason for extending the lockdown.

Abiodun said: “In view of the evidence of community transmission and poor compliance with the lockdown measures, we are constrained to extend the lockdown by another week till Sunday 24th of May.

“The current pattern of lockdown with relaxation windows from 7.00 am to 5.00 pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday continues.

“We will continue to monitor the level of compliance with the lockdown measures and incidence of community transmission and hopefully, there will be positive developments that will enable us further ease the lockdown at the end of this new lockdown period.”
