Nigerian Govt Sets Strict Conditions for Places of Worship

The government has issued a safety advisory, which among other things, restricts children from churches and Islamiyya schools in mosques, as part of measures to contain the spread of COVID-19. Worship centres have also been instructed to keep detailed records of their worshippers, including contact addresses. The mass gathering of more than 20 people outside of a workplace or place of worship remains prohibited.
