The easing of the lockdown in Lagos state came with new rules. While citizens have been allowed to go about their daily activities, it came with the instruction that everyone must return back to their homes on or before 8 pm at night daily.
Sanwo-Olu noted that the flouting of the rule will not be tolerated.
