BREAKING! Lagos Cancels Plans To Reopen Churches, Mosques

The Lags State Government has canceled the planned reopening of churches and mosques in the state.

While the mosques were billed to be reopened on Friday, June 19, the churches were billed to open Sunday, June 21.

Sanwo-Olu said the volte-face was as a result of the rising cases of the coronavirus pandemic in the state.

Lagos remains the epicentre of the virus in the country, with a caseload that is now over 7,300.
