Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Thursday, June 4, announced that the ban on worship centres in the state would be lifted, effective from June 19 for mosques and June 21 for churches.

The governor made the announcement a few days after insisting that the restriction on religious gatherings in the state would remain.

Many Lagos residents took to social media to express their displeasure, as the state has recorded the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the country.

See some reactions below.

Recall that the Federal Government had earlier on Monday, June 1, lifted the ban imposed on worship centres across the country as part of its measures to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Interstate travels and domestic flights were still banned. Schools, restaurants, clubs and other social gatherings also remained closed. As could be expected, Twitter users reacted. See how they reacted below:
