Police To Begin Massive Arrest Of Face Mask Violators In Lagos State

The Lagos State Police Command says it will soon begin the arrest of any resident of the state caught not using a face mask in public.

 

The state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, who disclosed this in an interview with The Nation, said the command has arrested 3,802 persons between April and June for not wearing face masks, adding that all the suspects were charged to court and sentenced accordingly.

“We have been enforcing the law. We have arrested 3,802 people for not using face masks and 12,900 suspects were held for flouting various COVID-19 guidelines since the commencement of the lockdown in April. They were all charged to court. But we are going to be stricter now because we have noticed that some people do not wear at all while others hang it on their chins. That is not the purpose for the directive.

The face mask must be properly worn to cover the mouth and nose. That is how it will serve its purpose. Our people must know that the policy is for their safety and that of society. As soon as you step out of your house into public space, you should have your face mask on, worn properly. It should be that way until you return to your private space. Wearing a face mask is compulsory just as social distancing is compulsory. You cannot do one and leave the other. For emphasis, we will arrest those who put the face mask on their chins and also arrest those not wearing it.” he said

Governors Forum Sues for Accurate Dissemination of Information

The Nigeria governors’ forum (NGF) have refuted claims of hoarding palliatives meant for distribution in various states of the country.

In a statement by the head, media & public affairs of the NGF, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, the forum while pleading with the public to desist from spreading rumors said a lot of the information circulating the social media needs to be fact checked.

The statement said “the NGF reemphasizes and corrects the impression that palliatives found in warehouses that were broken into in Lagos and some other states were kept in storage for members of the society especially our vulnerable citizens.”

According to the statement, the erroneous impression in the public domain that these palliatives were hoarded is not just inaccurate, entirely erroneous and untrue but also mischievous, to say the least.

Until mid-October, when the NGF  had its last meeting, up to ten states had not participated in the flag-off ceremonies for the distribution of palliatives in their states. This was because the items meant for distribution in these states had not been completely received from CACOVID, the forum said.

The governors also explained that some other states that still had palliatives in their warehouses chose to keep a strategic reserve ahead of a projected second wave of covid-19.

The NGF assures all contributors to the palliatives that prior to the looting of these ware houses, states had kept full accounts of all the items received and distributed.
