AGENCY REPORT

The Enforcement Team on COVID-19 social distancing in Ovia South-West Local Government Council of Edo State, on Sunday, locked up 13 churches that violated social distancing law.

Mr Fred Aimienwanwu, the Vice-Chairman of the council led the task force team on the exercise.

Aimienwanwu said that the team took the decision to visit some worship centres in order to ensure total compliance with the state government’s order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus in the state.

NAN reports that the enforcement team was mandated by the council boss, Mr Destiny Enabulele, to enforce compliance and seal off the churches defying government’s order.

Aimienwanwu said that the team carried out the enforcement, acting on a tip-off given by some individuals.

“These observers reported that some churches directed their members to attend service in spite of the lockdown order by the federal, state and local governments,” he said.
