Some residents of Abuja and Lagos have started flouting the directive to stay at home to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

On March 29, President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered a 14-day lockdown in Ogun, Lagos and Abuja as a measure to check the pandemic.

But some residents had been complaining about the effect of the lockdown, expressing their inability to meet their demands.

TheCable went round Abuja and Lagos to observe the level of compliance. While many motorists were prevented from going to their destinations, those rendering essential services were allowed to move freely
