Naturally, the “underbridge” part of Falomo in Lagos has recently been a masterpiece as it shares very close boundaries with popular places like Ikoyi, Victoria Island and Lekki areas while also leading to the renowned 3rd Mainland bridge as well.

Supporting Pillars of the Falomo bridge now attracts passers-by because of its beautiful murals that make the place irresistible. As part of a campaign towards curbing the spread of the COVID-19, the government of Lagos state alongside some private bodies has now added nose masks to all the portrait paintings on the pillars of the Falomo bridge.

Lagos State Govt promotes wearing of nose masks to prevent COVID-19 spread with murals of Falomo underbridge

Following the ease of lockdown all over Nigeria, the government of Lagos state decided to make use of the murals on the pillars of the Falomo bridge as a good opportunity to promote its fight against the spread of COVID-19 in the state.

As of the time of writing this report, Lagos state currently has a record of 15,355 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 192 deaths and 2,160 recovered patients because it has been the epicenter of the disease in Nigeria since the outbreak.

As for the changes or “retouching” made to the beautiful murals of the Falomo underbridge pillars, we can clearly see that nose masks were added to the paintings as well as messages inscribed on the nose masks. The writings on the painted nose masks are mostly written in local dialects to effectively pass the intended messages across to passersby as well as people who come to the underbridge to relax during this period of the COVID-19 pandemic.
