Worshippers, who did not wear facemasks were on Friday prevented from entering the Jos Central Mosque to observe their Jumma’at prayers, Daily Trust reports.
Our correspondent reports that worshippers who wore facemasks were allowed entrance into the mosque but those without the facemasks observed their prayers outside the mosque.
Our correspondent observed that there was proper social distancing among worshippers during the prayer session.
Earlier on Thursday, the mosque issued guidelines on how Friday service would be conducted, including the use of facemasks by all worshippers who must pray inside the Mosque.
Daily Trust reports that the Jumma’at prayer is the first since April when the state government closed down all worship centres across the state.
