Court Sentences Gbagada Joggers to 30-day Community Service

No fewer than 34 persons have been sentenced by a Yaba Magistrates’ Court in Lagos to one month of community service for violating the social distancing directives of the Lagos State Government.

All the defendants pleaded guilty except three.

The court on Wednesday found them guilty on a one-count charge of working out in a group larger than 20 persons on the Gbagada-Oworonsoki Expressway.

The court ruled that the violators should be quarantined for 14 days at the Infectious Diseases Hospital Yaba or any other place designated by the government.
