The command, in a press release issued by the Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi said the command had activated all its tactics squads as well as DPOs to ensure full implementation of the ban.
He said the Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, ordered the immediate release of minor offenders who were in police custody for adequate measure and prevention of COVID-19.
“In view of the outbreak of coronavirus also known as COVID-19 which has been declared by World Health Organization as pandemic and the subsequent order by the Federal and Ogun state governments banning all form of social and religious gathering, the Ogun state police command wishes to inform the general public of its readiness to embark on full enforcement of the banning order.
