COVID-19: Ogun State Gov. Speaks On Mandatory Use Of Face Mask


Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has threatened to arrest and isolate defaulters of compulsory use of face mask for 14 days. 

The Governor who disclosed that the state would begin full enforcement of mandatory use of face mask on May 1, said defaulters would be viewed seriously as an attempt to infect members of the public with COVID – 19. 

The governor while addressing newsmen on Friday evening at his Iperu home in Ikenne Local Government Area, said over one million masks have been produced for distribution to the residents. 

He said,

“Be rest assured that we will arrest you if you don’t wear face mask. In fact, when we arrest you, we will take you to an isolation centre because we will believe that you want to intentionally inflict or afflict someone with COVID – 19 and that is why you are not wearing your face mask. 

“We will isolate you for 14 days during which we will make you do community service. So in your best interest, please ensure that if you are going out wear your face mask."

He further said that out of 29 COVID – 19 cases in the state, six have been discharged while the state is left with 22 active cases.
