Due to the viral photos that flooded the internet some days ago concerning some joggers along Gbagada/ Oworonsoki expressway in Lagos on Monday, where the joggers violated the lockdown by the federal government.



However, a magistrate’s court in Yaba, Lagos state, has now sentenced 34 persons to 14 days quarantine and one month community service for violating the state’s directives.

These people were arrested on Wednesday for participating in fitness exercise along the Gbagada-Oworonsoki expressway.

The federal government had on March 30 imposed a 14-day lockdown on Lagos, Ogun and the federal capital territory as part of measures to contain the spread of coronavirus pandemic.

It will be recalled that, Lagos government had also ordered that every gathering in the state should not exceed 20 persons in a bid to ensure social distancing measures.

On Wednesday, the court convicted the defendants after they pleaded guilty to a one-count charge of working out in a group larger than 20 persons. It ruled that the violators will be quarantined for a period of 14 days at the Infectious Diseases Hospital Yaba or any other place assigned by the government.
