Police in the Nigerian city of Lagos arrested people seen breaking a government-imposed curfew late on Monday, AP reported.
Some businesses reopened on Monday in Nigeria as the lockdown was eased in some cities but not all measures were relaxed.
Nigeria has had 2,802 registered cases of COVID-19 and 93 deaths according to figures by the Johns Hopkins University.
The new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms for most people. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness or death.
There have been over 3.5 million cases or coronavirus reported by governments around the world, according to Johns Hopkins University.
The number of infections is thought to be far higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.
