Breaking: Ondo Governor Cancels Easter Services Over Coronavirus

Ondo State Government under the Oluwarotimi Akeredolu’s lead administration on Tuesday, April 14 following the report of third confirmed COVID-19 case in the state, imposed an indefinite curfew starting from 7 pm to 7 am in the state to curtail the spread of the global pandemic, Coronavirus.

The development was announced by Governor Akeredolu while speaking on Tuesday at the Government House in Akure, the capital city of Ondo State.

However, Akeredolu has debunked the report that the third case of the COVID-19 in the state is not a serving member of the NYSC as earlier reported.

He noted that he is “But an employee of the Nigerian Army Barracks, who served the nation as a medical doctor in the same facility three years ago and was retained.”

He added that the said person had come in contact with the index case, an army officer while giving him treatment as a suspected case in the clinic.

Akeredolu reiterates, “There is the need for an effective measure of containment, investigation, enforcement and control, and the government will not shy away from its duty to ensure same.”

“To this end, I have directed further sterner measures to enforce compliance to these regulations,” he said.

The governor further explained that business owners, especially beer parlours, had not adhered to the stay-at-home order hence the need for the indefinite curfew.

Akeredolu, in his statement, warns against violators of the lockdown, noting that individuals found to have breached government’s directives on the restriction of movement of persons and goods has been arrested and presently in detention.
