CUBANA night club has been shutdown until further notice after flouting the COVID-19 measure set by the Lagos State Government. The club, located in Ikeja, had opened to customers during the weekend despite ban on club operation within the state.
Lagos State had ordered that night club remain closed amid second wave of COVID-19 in Nigeria. The directive was given to curb the rising number of COVID-19 confirmed cases, which now average 500 cases per day.
In a statement by the state government on December 18, 2020, it was directed that, "Night Clubs have not been allowed to open yet. All Night Clubs in Lagos must immediately shut down, until further notice."
The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-olu warned that, "Let me repeat, as I close, that we will not hesitate to bring the full weight of the law to bear on any person or organization caught breaching our public health regulations and protocols with regards to the Coronavirus disease."
Despite the warning, CUBANA Club opened its door to the public, disregarding order from the state government. The club has now been shutdown, with customers escorted out of the club premises by police officers, who were led by Lagos state commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu.
