Others in the second group are to sweep the street beginning from Maraba to Government Secondary School Roundabout, Ilorin.

Some of them who spoke on condition of anonymity told journalists that the state government should improve on the distribution of palliatives to them so as to cushion the effect of the stay at home order.

They also called on the government to continue to embark more on sensitisation on the pandemic disease in order to curb the spread of the pandemic, especially in rural communities of the state.
