Lagos State Govt Seals Twist Hotel In Ojodu Berger, And 10 Nightclubs Over Breach Of COVID-19 Protocol


The Lagos state government has sealed 11 facilities, including event centres, lounges and nightclubs, for contravening the COVID-19 protocol.

Speaking yesterday, Lanre Mojola, director-general of the Lagos State Safety Commission (LSC), said the facilities were sealed during the weekend.

Mojola, who was represented at the sealing of the facilities by Wale Adeboje, the events safety administrator of LSC, said the agency was informed of their intention to organise parties and events, but the centres failed to meet the expectations on complying with the COVID-19 protocol.

According to him, the number of persons approved for the centres exceeded what the officials met on ground when they visited the places at the weekend.

The LSC boss said some of the facilities had up to 200 guests who did not use face masks and hand sanitisers.

He said the practice was out of place as far as safety guidelines are concerned, hence the sealing of the facilities.

Mojola noted that the affected facilities include: UBC Club, VGC; Sapearz Lounge, Awolowo road, Ikoyi; Bravo event centre, Ogba; Ronite Event Centre, Iju road, Agege.

Others are: All Seasons Event Centre, Ipaja; Olajide Adeoluwa Memorial Hall, Carabana Lounge/Bar, Isolo, Ajao estate;
DNA, Victoria Island, Twist Lounge, Kofo Abayomi, Victoria Island; Carlsbad Lounge, Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja, and Darts Event Centre, Grammar School, Ifako Ijaiye.

“The facilities were sealed for noncompliance with the event safety clearance that was issued to them by the commission,” he said.

“The commission will continue to monitor and enforce compliance across the state, while warning that all the COVID-19 protocol violators and perpetrators will be summoned to the commission’s office in Alausa for further directives on what to do as far as their negligence and non-compliance is concerned.”
