The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson has warned religious organizations in the state who may be planning to open religious centres and congregate to worship to bury such plans, reminding them that the government order on the ban on large gathering is still in place.

The warning was contained in a release by the Public Relations Officer of the Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Police, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi and made available to newsmen in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Ebrimson, who described the plan as a total disobedience to both the state and federal government directives on large gathering, noted that such move can undermine the efforts of both the state and federal governments to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The statement read, “It has come to the notice of Ogun State Police Command that some religious leaders in the state are preparing to open their various religious centres for people to converge in total disobedience to both the state and federal government directives”.

“The command hereby appeal to such religious leaders in both Islamic and Christian faith who may be having such intention to have a change of mind because the security agencies in the state will view such with all seriousness”.
