Ondo State government has come out to say that it would shut down any religious organization that does not obey strict rules governing the partial lift of ban on religious activities across the state.
The Chairman Inter-ministerial Committee on COVID 19 and Commissioner for Health, Dr. Wahab Adegbenro revealed this recently in Akure.
According to him, the governor simply decided to lift the ban on religious activities in the interest of the people, not because the pandemic is over.
He added that all forms of social distancing rules must be strictly adhered to and hugging, handshake, holding of hands to pray will continue to be forbidden for now.
His words, “Muslims are only allowed to meet on Fridays, while Christians can only meet on Sundays, as weekly services and Vigils are prohibited for now.
“Social Distancing rules must be strictly adhered to, hugging, handshake, holding of hands to pray, are forbidden for now.”
