Lockdown: We’re not satisfied with compliance level – Enforcement Committee

…. Warns migrants against lockdown, NCDC protocols violation

The Ijesaland lockdown Enforcement Committee on Friday, expressed dissatisfaction with  the  compliance level of the exercise so far.  

This is just as it warned people from other parts of the country living in Ijesaland against flouting  government’s directives designed to prevent community transmission of Coronavirus in the State.

It condemned in its entirety the high level of disobedience displayed by some artisanal miners resident in some parts of Ijesaland since the beginning of the lockdown in the areas, insisting that the migrants in Ifewara and its environs in Atakunmosa West Local Government had turned deaf ears to lockdown order imposed on the area.

Government of the State of Osun had last weekend announced a 7-day total lockdown in  four local governments in Ijesa axis of the State as part of efforts to curb community transmission of  the Coronavirus pandemic.

The enforcement team, which toured Iwara-Ijesa, Iwikun-Ijesa and Ifewara-Ijesa all in Atakunmosa-West local government area, arrested some violators who were later sensitised on the health implications of COVID-19 and the likely effect of their insolence.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Security, Mrs. Abiodun Ige, who led the enforcement team, decried the way and manner the migrants residing in the areas flouted government’s directives.

She lamented what she described as gross disobedience of government’s directives, saying the suspected migrants were carrying on as if there was no lockdown in Ifewara and its environs.

Ige who expressed fear  of the implications  of the conduct of the migrants in the town noted that if urgent action was not taken, such an act might jeopardise the fundamental reason the lockdown was imposed.

She warned the defaulters to desist from taking government’s directives for granted, saying there won’t be any preferential treatment  in the enforcement of rules.

“It is unfortunate that despite the lockdown, some  people from other parts of the country still flagrantly opened their markets and engaged in open buying and selling activities.

“As you can see, we met them here in the market selling and buying as if there was no lockdown. Many of them didn’t observe safety protocols. They didn’t wear nose masks and they didn’t maintain social distancing as directed by the government”, she added.

Also, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Rural Development and Community Affairs, Hon. Mumini Adekunle Rafiu, lamented the poor compliance level experienced in some parts of the areas. He said government would not rest on its oars in ensuring strict compliance to lockdown order as efforts would be jerked up to strengthen security in the affected areas.

COVID-19 Lockdown: Osun enforcement team arrests violators, counsels them in Ilesa

The enforcement team of the Osun COVID-19 Task Force on Thursday arrested some of the violators of the ongoing lockdown order of the state government in Ijesaland.

This was coming as the 7-day lockdown in Ijesaland entered day three.

The violators and other non-adherents to the NCDC’s protocols were apprehended for flouting government’s directives to forestall community transmission of the dreaded Coronavirus.

The state government had last weekend announced the total lockdown in four local government areas of Ijesaland as part of its swift response to combat the pandemic.

The decision to lockdown some parts of the state, according to the government, was arrived at due to increase in the number of confirmed cases of the pandemic in the state.

The state’s medical team managing the pandemic had earlier in its reports revealed that many of the people that had contracted the virus were residents of Ijesaland; hence the need for government to step up its preventive measures.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Security, Mrs. Abiodun Ige, who led the enforcement team, said the decision to arrest some of the violators was to ensure total compliance to government’s order.

She noted that those that were temporarily arrested would serve as a deterrent to others who might be nursing such an act of insolence toward the lockdown.

While counseling the lockdown defaulters at Ereja square, Ige said the government embarked on the lockdown as the best option to forestall the further spread of the virus in the state and the areas in particular.

Some of the violators who were largely residents of Ilesa West and Ilesa East, were apprehended by the law enforcement agents stationed at different locations in the four Councils.

The violators were counselled on the necessary precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the virus and were later released.

Speaking on the level of compliance so far, Ige said it is worthy of note that people have begun to see the need for them to stay safe and stay alive. She appealed to the residents of the affected areas to bear with the development as government cannot afford to expose its citizens to avoidable dangers.
