Also speaking, Mr Afolabi Olawale, the Public Affairs Officer of LBSL, said that the free ride had been suspended since Easter celebrations over the outbreak and spread of Coronavirus.

Olawale noted that Muslims had also been told to pray at home during the season because of the deadly virus.

“Free ride has been suspended for Easter, Eid-el-Fitri as well as for this Eid-el-Kabir. This is because nobody is going to any prayer ground nor for any economic activities.

“So, we are to stay at home and keep safe,” he said.

The LBSL spokesman wished all Muslims Barkah de Sallah.”
