As part of measures to check the spread of coronavirus, major mosques across the country did not hold Juma’t service on Friday.

The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) had earlier directed Muslim faithful to comply with instructions from the government and health authorities.

The Ansar ud deen Society of Nigeria also suspended mosque activities involving Friday congregational prayers.

The governments of Lagos and Ogun banned gatherings of more than 50 people.

TheCable went round to check compliance with the directive on large gatherings.
