COVID-19: Police vows to aggressively enforce curfew in Ogun

The Ogun State police command said on Sunday it would aggressively enforce the nationwide curfew imposed by the Federal Government in the state.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on Monday ordered a curfew as part of measures to check further spread of COVID-19 in the country.

The Command Spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who stated this in a statement in Abeokuta, appealed to members of the public to adhere strictly to the movement restriction.

According to him, the command, in collaboration with other sister agencies, would enforce the federal government’s order accordingly.

He said all human and vehicular movement would not be allowed during the period and anybody found violating the order would be made to face the full wrath of the law.

Oyeyemi said: “Any vehicle or motorcycle found to be violating the curfew will be impounded and the owner will be prosecuted in accordance with the provisions of the law.

“The Command hereby appeals to those driving vehicles supplying foods and other essential things to remain wherever they maybe once it is 8:00 p.m. and continue their journey the following day or risk their vehicles being impounded.”

He commended the people of the state for their endurance since the beginning of the pandemic and for cooperating with security agents.

“It is expected that the same sense of maturity will be displayed as the curfew begins,” the command spokesman added.
