243 persons have been convicted for violating the COVID-19 protocols in Lagos State.
They were each fined N20,000.
The fine, which totaled N4,860,000, was reportedly issued after the violators were arraigned in a mobile court on Saturday.
Newsmen reported that the residents were arrested during a raid led by the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, who also arrested some persons for violating the curfew imposed by the Federal Government.
Odumosu, while parading the suspects, said the violation of the COVID-19 protocols had serious implications for other residents, adding that the 243 residents would be charged to court.
The state Police Public Relations Office, Muyiwa Adejobi, later told newsmen that those arrested had been fined N20,000 each.
