The decision was announced by the state governor via his Twitter handle.
The Governor pointed out that the decision was a preventive measure to curb the spread of the virus in the country. He also urged the citizens of the State to maintain their personal hygiene.
Schools in Lagos, as well as North-West and North-Central states, will also be closed for some time to curb the spread of the disease in the country.
