The Lags State Government has cancelled the planned reopening of churches and mosques in the state.
This was announced by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday, at a televised press briefing.
While the mosques were billed to be reopened on Friday June 19, the churches were billed to open Sunday, June 21.
Sanwo-Olu said the volte-face was as a result of the rising cases of the coronavirus pandemic in the state.
Lagos remains the epicentre of the virus in the country, with a caseload that is now over 7,300.
