The announcement was made late Wednesday night.

The Commissioner for Education in Lagos, Mrs Folashade Adefisayo who made the statement, said that the move became necessary to prevent children and their teachers from getting more vulnerable to the pandemic.

“It is important for parents to ensure that their children practise ‘social distancing’ while at home, wash their hands regularly or use hand sanitisers and observe high standards of personal hygiene. Children should be encouraged to remain at home.

“The closure is not intended to create panic but to arrest the spread of the disease, which has become a global threat,” the statement said.

This is coming few hours after the government suspended religious activities in the state.
