“The second wave of COVID-19, our common enemy, with no respect for gender, tribe or status is fast ravaging the world.

“In Nigeria and Lagos, amongst its casualties are distinguished personalities in the society.

“To this end, it becomes expedient that under my watch as executive chairman, full enforcement and compliance measures as directed by NCDC will be totally observed,” he said.

Buraimoh urged the citizenry to take responsibility by observing the existing COVID-19 guidelines.

“Report suspected cases to the appropriate authorities,” said Buraimoh, who vowed to prosecute violators of the guidelines. (NAN)
