The Lagos state government has made it mandatory for prospective couples to obtain approval from state authorities to celebrate weddings with the attendance of 300 people.

The Director General of the Lagos State Security Commission, Mr. Lanre Mojola, who stated this, said: “Weddings and social gatherings should not exceed 300 people with prior authorization from the Lagos State Security Commission.”

However, he said the move was made necessary in light of the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in the state.

Mojola said authorization is free and prospective couples will have to go to the Commission’s website to enter their wedding details, adding that security marshals will be deployed at such events to enforce all COVID-19 protocols for avoid any possible spread of the virus.

The safety commission, however, warned that anyone caught disobeying the directive would be penalized accordingly.

Mojola emphasizes the need to comply with all COVID-19 security measures such as: use of masks, regular hand washing with soap and running water, use of disinfectant, social distancing, among others, in order to flatten the curve of the virus in Lagos.
