But only primary and secondary school students in their final years will be allowed back into classrooms to enable them prepare for crucial examinations.

Travel between Nigeria’s different states will also be allowed from 1 July, as part of the gradual easing of the lockdown measures imposed in March.

But a nightly, nationwide curfew from 22:00 local time to 04:00 remains in place, according to a media aide of President Buhari.

However, earlier on Monday the head of Nigeria’s task force on coronavirus, Boss Mustapha, suggested that the authorities might reimpose a total lockdown in 18 of the country’s 774 Local Government Areas.

He said those 18 areas alone account for about 60% of Nigeria’s total number of cases – possibly requiring a “precision lockdown” for mass testing.

Nigeria has recorded 24,567 cases of the virus with 565 deaths.
