The Commissioner of Police, CP Kenneth Ebrimson has appealed to religious leaders in Ogun State intending to open their various religious centers to desist from the act so as not to undermine the determination of the state and federal government to fight the COVID-19 pandemic to a standstill.
The police boss in a statement through the State Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi stated that, “It has come to the notice of Ogun State Police Command that religious leaders of both Christian and Islamic religion who are preparing to open their various religious centers for people to converge in total disobedience to both the state and federal government directives should desist from such an act.”
The CP appealed to such religious leaders in both Islamic and Christian faith who may be having such intention to have a change of mind because according to him the security agencies in the state will view such with all seriousness.
Additionally, all religious leaders were reminded that the ban on all forms of gathering be it social or religious is still in force.
The CP also admonished all and sundry to cooperate with the government in its efforts to make the state coronavirus free.
