The Lagos State special taskforce has shut down Cubana nightclub in the Ikeja GRA area and other facilities for disobeying the State’s ban on the activities of nightclubs.
The operation was carried out by the task force in the early hours of Sunday, December 20, 2020, following a recent ban on nightclubs in the State that was occasioned by a surge in COVID-19 cases.
The news was confirmed on Twitter by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on New Media, Gawat Jubril.
“The Lagos State Safety Commission just sealed CUBANA Ikeja and other facilities for non-compliance to the State Government COVID-19 protocols,” Jubril tweeted.
