In a bid to curb the further spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the Nigerian government banned the gathering of a large number of people. The government explained that social distancing has to be maintained to ensure that people do not contract the virus.
In some states in the country, gatherings beyond 20 people were not allowed. As a result of this ban, churches were told not to hold services especially if they have a large number of congregants and if they must hold, the number of people in attendance must not be more than 20.
Despite this law, some Nigerians were bent on going to church and some churches also opened.
