The governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, has announced that anyone who is caught moving about without a facemask, will be severely punished.

According to him, flouting the order can earn such persons up to six months imprisonment under an extant Regulation and State Law.

The governor said this at a briefing on Wednesday, ahead of the Eid-el-Kabir (Ileya), celebrations.

He also noted that the state will not be celebrating owing to Covid-19 restrictions which discourages large gatherings, whether for prayers or partying.

“We will all therefore have to celebrate solemnly with our families, as the Almighty Allah (SWT) grants us the grace to celebrate more Ileyas in our lifetime,
” Abiodun said.

“All current measures and restrictions will remain in place for the general public.

“These include: 10 pm-4 am daily weekday curfew; total weekend lockdown; transport sector restrictions; decontamination and physical distancing; restaurants’ takeaway service allowance; measure compliance by industries; and wearing of facemasks, which if flouted is punishable by up to 6 months’ imprisonment under an extant Regulation and State Law.”
