The Federal Government has relaxed total lockdown it imposed on the Federal Capital Territory, Lagos and Ogun states to curb the spread of COVID-19.
The government, in the new guidelines it issued on Wednesday, stated that markets selling food would open from 10am to 2pm every other day.
The new guidelines also ban bus services during the lockdown. It adds that a mass gathering of more than 20 people is not allowed.
The Federal Government reviewed the lockdown on Wednesday just as COVID-19 cases rose to 174 with 35 new cases.
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control had on Tuesday put the total number of COVID-19 cases in the country at 139.
The President, however, exempted health personnel, journalists, workers of telecommunication and power companies from the stay-at-home order.
