Again, Ogun State Extends Lockdown Over Coronavirus



Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun on Friday night extended Coronavirus lockdown in the state for another one week.


Governor Abiodun while addressing newsmen at the Governor’s Office, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, cited non – compliance to the safety regulations and the community spread of the virus as reason for extending the sit – at – home order.


The Governor hinted that state officials would continue to monitor the level of compliance with the lockdown measures and the incidence of community transmission, in order to determine easing of the lockdown.


He said, “Consequently in view of the evidence of community transmission and poor compliance with the lockdown measures, we are constrained to extend the lockdown for another week till Sunday 24th of May.


*The current pattern of lockdown, with relaxation windows from 7.00am to 5.00pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday continues. We will continue to monitor the level of compliance with the lockdown measures and incidence of community transmission and hopefully, there will be positive developments that will enable us further ease the lockdown at the end of this new lockdown period.”


Abiodun disclosed that 108 violators of lockdown order and measures have been apprehended and prosecuted in the state.


“They were promptly tried by the newly introduced mobile courts, with some of them made to pay fine whilst some are undergoing community service. In the same vein, 517 vehicles, 109 motorcycles and 6 tricycles were impounded for breaching the Presidential directive on curfew within the same period.


"In addition, security agencies also intercepted migrants from other states, who defied the ban on interstate travels, and promptly turned them back at our borders with other states,” he said.
