December 31st: Lagos CP Insists On Curfew, Orders Closure Of Churches, Night Clubs


Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has directed all officers to enforce all protocols as highlighted by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

Odumosu instructed his officers and men to enforce the 12am to 4am curfew and also ensure the total closure of night clubs, bars, lounges, event centres, amongst others.

This was contained in a statement signed by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Thursday.

It comes as churches have adjusted their plans for crossover services on the night of December 31, 2020.

“The Commissioner of Police reiterated that they must enforce the use of face mask regularly at public places (markets/malls), social distancing, total closure of night clubs, bars, lounges, event centres, no social party, street carnivals, use of infra-red thermometers to check body temperature, hand sanitisers and enforcement of the imposed curfew between 12 midnight and 4am.


“All Area Commanders and DPOs must ensure such due enforcement in their various offices across the command; noting that COVID-19 is real and we must do everything possible within our reach to halt its spread,” the statement partly read.



  1. Someone should tell our government and these leaders that Churches and worship centres are very organized places with the required decency and dignity to maintain the covid 19 protocol, otherwise we get the feeling that there is a hidden agenda in this pursuit for closure in worship that last just for few hours. The market and the bar should be our focus
