The Lagos State Safety Commission has sealed over 10 social and religious centres over non-compliance with the directive on social distancing and ban on social and religious gathering.

The enforcement team, led by the Director- General of the commission, Lanre Mojola, disclosed that the commission sealed Harvest Lagos, Bay Lounge, The Heavens Suites, Angle Villa Bar, Ehi Guest House and Gardens Egbeda, Mountain Top Hotels and Suites Ojodu.

The Technical Adviser to the Commission, Seun Awojobi, explained that while carrying out the enforcement on Friday night, the team was allegedly attacked and shot at Osigold Hotels and Bar in Baruwa Ipaja, Lagos.

He said the hotel had over 100 people clubbing and dancing within its premises, flouting the state government’s directive and contravening the Infectious Disease Law of the state.

The Director-General affirmed that the hotel was sealed, saying the team was determined to ensure that relevant laws and safety guidelines were strictly adhered to.

”Citizens should take responsibility and fight against the COVID-19 more seriously to complement the efforts of the government to curb spread of the virus,” he said.

Mojola enjoined the public to continue to register their businesses in line with the ”Register to Open Initiative” of the government on:, to ensure adequate space management and preparation against when such businesses will be allowed to open.

He sounded a note of warning to other facilities in the state, stating that the commission would continue to shut down erring and non compliant facilities across the state.

Mojola reiterated the importance of wearing a face mask always “as it ensures that you are keeping yourself and other people around you from being infected,”.
