As part of efforts by the Kwara State government against coronavirus pandemic, the order of lockdown has been enforced as movements are restricted to only health workers.
Checks made by FELLOW PRESS revealed that streets in Ilorin, Kwara State capital is deserted even in major part of the city. Shops and filling stations are closed down, and only few motorists were plying the road.
Officers of the Police force, VIO and road safety were also sighted by our correspondents at different junctions in the city to enforce and arrest those who defile the order.
Currently, there are no cases of coronavirus in Kwara State, though neighbouring Oyo and Osun States already have single cases as total incident in Nigeria stands at 65.
The state governor, Abduraman Abdulrasaq, had first enforced closure of all public and private schools, and later included tertiary institutions in the order.
Today the total restriction of movement is being enforced.
Meanwhile, the Federal Government has also passed order banning inter-state movement and all motor parks across the country in a bid to control the spread of Covid-19.
The Federal Government has also been advised to release funds to cushion adverse effect of stay at home and closure of business occasioned by the coronavirus.
According to Reno Omokri, the spokesman for ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, the $308million Abacha loot should be secured and allotted for all Nigerians with bank account.
