Lagos and Ogun State government have rebuffed pressure from Churches to relax restrictions introduced to curb the spread of Covid-19 infections so that they could hold cross over vigils today to usher in the New year.
The two states with a high concentration of headquarters of churches in the country insisted that the 12 midnight to four O’clock early morning curfew introduced by the federal government as part of measures to combat COVID-19 remains in place.
They warned that dire consequences await individuals and groups that violete the regulations.
The Ondo State government which on Tuesday warned churches against holding any cross over service in the state today also reiterates its warning while assuring the clergy that its decision was not to undermine Chritianity but to safeguard public health.
