Sit-at-home to avoid harassment from security agents – Lagos NMA tells by Macsino(m) : 6:32 pm On May 20

By Nwafor Sunday
Following the arrest of 50 health workers in Lagos on Tuesday, the Lagos state chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), Wednesday ordered its members to sit-at-home in order to avoid further embarrassment from security agents.

Recall that Police, and other security operatives were instructed by the state government to ensure restriction of movement in the state, in order to stem the spread of coronavirus pandemic.

Performing their duties, officers arrested health personnel and journalists, not knowing they were exempted from the lockdown order.

“All Medical Doctors in Lagos State are hereby advised to proceed on a sit-at-home, in their best interest, starting from 6pm today, Wednesday, 20th May, 2020 indefinitely, until otherwise advised.”
