Uber Nigeria, the global ride-hailing service, has temporarily suspended its services after the federal government imposed a curfew in Lagos and Abuja to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Presently in Nigeria, there are 135 confirmed cases with the majority of the infections in Lagos and Abuja.

A statement from Uber reads: “As announced by President Muhammadu Buhari on March 29, 2020, there will be a restriction of all movement within Lagos and Abuja during the 14-day lockdown which begins at 11 pm on Monday, 30th March.

“Based on this directive, Uber will temporarily cease operations for the period of the lockdown, subject to any further government announcements.”
