Lagos Police Arrests 43 Clubgoers, Strippers for Violating COVID-19 Protocols

They were arrested inside the club for clustering and clubbing without any regard for the COVID-19 protocols.

The Lagos State Police Command says 43 people were arrested at a club in Victoria Island on Sunday, January 10, 2021 for violating COVID-19 safety protocols.

Hundreds of people have been arrested in similar fashion since the government vowed strict enforcement of safety protocols especially following the second wave of the novel disease kicking off in December 2020.

Over a dozen clubs in the state have been sealed for violating restrictions on the business, as well as for ignoring the 12 am to 4 am curfew.

Lagos Police spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, said in a statement on Monday, January 11 that the suspects were arrested at Eclipse Night Club in VI by Police operatives attached to Maroko Division.
