Muslims observed very strict compliance with COVID-19 safety protocol at Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Mosque, in Ojokoro area of Lagos State on Friday, marking the reopening of worship centres in the state, after four months of closure.
Pictures shared on Facebook by Abiola Ayankunbi, who worshipped at the Mosque, showed compliance with restriction on number of worshippers, social distancing and wearing of nose masks.
The federal government had in March, shut worship centres across the country, to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Though the government has since lifted the ban on religious gathering in June, Churches and Mosques in Lagos had remained shut, due to rising cases of infections.
However, governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu lifted the ban last week, following the drop in positive cases in the state.
He stated that places of worship will be allowed to reopen with 50 percent of worship capacity, and strict compliance with safety guidelines.
