Just like many other major states in the country and the world at large, the Ekiti state government is now frowning against the idea of not putting on facemasks as preventive measures against COVID-19.
The Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice of the state made this known today when addressing the newsmen in Ado-Ekiti that from tomorrow, it is now a grievous offense to move about in public places without putting on their face mask.
With stringent promise that there will be consequences for anyone that goes by without complying with the laid down rules.
The Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice Mr Wale Fapounda revealed that the residents of the state has made it their normal routine to ignore the use of facemasks and this has become a trouble of the heart for the Governor of the State Dr. Kayode Fayemi; who now wants such reluctance wiped out by force amongst the people.
He made it known that mobile court has been designated in the state to try and prosecute offenders who go against the laws. They are to be fined or imposed with obligation of community service as means of punishment .
Motorcycle riders and Tricyclers carrying passengers without facemasks too would be responsible and partake in the punishment.
So Stay Safe.
