…to shut erring churches, mosques, others
Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola has extended curfew imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the state by another two weeks, effective from today.
This followed expiration of the initial two-week relaxation directed by the governor on 5th June, 2020 as the curfew would now run from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily.
Oyetola, who made the announcement yesterday in Osogbo, the state capital, however, expressed displeasure at the level of compliance with some of the relaxation guidelines especially the wearing of face masks in public places.
The governor, therefore, warned that worship centres and markets which failed to adhere to the guidelines would be shut down by the state government.
He said: “COVID-19 is real and Osun is not out of the woods yet. We have noticed that many of our citizens are brazenly flouting the safety guidelines put in place to curb the spread of virus in the state.
“The government will not fold its hands while a few people jeopardise the mileage we have recorded so far in this fight. It is not yet uhuru and strict enforcement will commence immediately. Any worship centre, market or motor park where people do not wear face mask or maintain social distancing will be shut down.”
