Osogbo residents who violated the coronavirus pandemic guidelines were forced Tuesday to take COVID-19 protocol courses against the spread of the virus.

Officials of the State Joint Task Force led by the Special Adviser to the Governor of Security, Ms. Abiodun Ige, were stationed in various locations in the state capital, arresting residents who refused to wear a face mask.

The Oke-Fia team stood at the roundabout for a few hours creating a stalemate from the point to Ola-Iya, Old-Garage and the Lamenco junction, while residents were arrested in traffic, including those in their vehicles.

Motorcyclists and commercial passengers, as well as motorists, who defied the guidelines, especially wearing a face mask in public, were arrested and taken to a classroom inside the Salvation Army Middle School in Oke-Fia during the few-hour courses. .

In class, state health officials taught wandering residents about the essence of taking responsibility, especially in the face of growing cases of the pandemic in the state.

The state government had threatened to impose another blockade on the state if residents refused to take responsibility for the increasing numbers statewide.

Speaking to journalists, Ige revealed that the state government has discovered that people have abandoned their responsibility to strictly adhere to established guidelines, hence the need for strict enforcement.

“The essence of the exercise is that the government has observed that people are not optimistic about compliance with the COVID-19 guidelines.

“The governor called us out to make sure that everyone who failed to comply was arrested and taken to a room and educated on the security protocol. The doctors were there to take the class. COVID-19 films were shown to them to know their real.

Videos of those affected, those who survived the virus and those who died from the virus so that they know that COVID-19 is real. Many people have been saying that the virus is not real, but with the video and what we taught them today they assured us that they will advocate for the safety of the people they know.

“The exercise will continue until we all comply in such a way that when we go out, we see that everyone is wearing their mask,” he said.
