“The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to an advert making the rounds, especially on social media about job vacancies at COVID-19 Lagos isolation centres.
“We wish to categorically state that this job vacancy advert did not emanate from the Lagos State Government, the Ministry of Health or the COVID-19 Lagos Incident Command System.
“Citizens are therefore advised to disregard this job vacancy advert in its entirety and rely only on official communication channels of the Lagos State Government and the Ministry of Health for news and information on COVID-19 Lagos Response,” the statement reads in part.
The state government is already investigating the source of the advert, with a view to arrest and bring the authors to book.
