The only exempted markets are the ones selling essential commodities such as medical equipment, water, foodstuff.

The governor made the disclosure at a live press conference on Tuesday.

He said,

“It is not a total lockdown, we still want people on essential services to go about their normal activities.

“We are trying to de-centralise markets in Lagos. This is why we want to use some of our closed schools as markets, so people can buy food and medicine without going a long distance.

“It is only when you are alive that you can talk about economics and finance.”
