COVID-19: Police arrest 43 clubbers, strippers in Lagos


The Lagos State police have arrested 43 clubbers, including strippers at a night club in Victoria Island.

They were arrested on Sunday for allegedly violating Coronavirus (COVID-19) protocols/guidelines.

Spokesman of the State Police Command, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said in a statement on Monday that the police operatives attached to Maroko Division, on the order of the Commissioner of Police, went after the deviant clubbers and got them arrested in the club clustering and clubbing without any regard for the COVID-19 protocols.

The CP, Hakeem Odumosu ordered that the suspects be moved to the taskforce office in Oshodi for prosecution.

He also ordered that club owners should no longer be spared as they encourage total disregard for the protocols.

The CP urged Lagosians to be law-abiding and to value their lives in view of the rising COVID-19 cases globally.
