Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the State of Osun, has extended the relaxation of curfew imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the State by another two weeks, effective from Friday, June 19.
This follows the expiration of the initial two-week relaxation ordered by the Governor on June 5. Following the relaxation two weeks ago, curfew now runs from 9 p.m to 5 a.m daily.
Oyetola made the announcement in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan on Thursday in Osogbo, the State capital.
He, however, expressed displeasure at the level of compliance with some relaxation guidelines, especially the wearing of face masks in public places.
The governor, therefore, warned that worship centres and markets that fail to adhere to the guidelines would be shut down by the State government.
He also reminded the citizens that the ban on inter-state travels remains in force, noting that any motor park that fails to comply with the directive will be shut down as well.
