The Lagos State Government has arraigned 34 residents arrested for gathering to work out or exercise on the Gbagada-Oworonshoki Expressway amid the Federal Government’s 14-day lockdown of the state to check the spread of coronavirus.
According to Punch, the 34 residents were dragged before the Lagos State Magistrate’s Court in Yaba, where they were arraigned on one count of violating the government’s social distancing directive.
Pictures of the joggers, who gathered in large numbers on the highway to work out, had surfaced on social media on Tuesday leaving many shocked.
The Lagos lockdown directive has been observed in the breach in inner city streets in the suburbs, where locals can be seen mingling about in close proximity, while flouting the social distancing directive.
Security forces stepped up enforcement of the lockdown, Wednesday.
