Meanwhile, the arrest is coming barely a day after Governor Sanwo-Olu re-imposed COVID-19 restrictions in Lagos State, where he noted that concerts, carnivals and street parties are banned in Lagos State until further notice, just as night clubs have not been allowed to open yet, noting that “all night clubs in Lagos must immediately shut down, until further notice.”
