The Ogun State Police Command has warned religious leaders - Christians and Muslims, against gathering their members for worship in their various centres tomorrow or any other day in defiance of State and Federal Government directive.

The Command in a statement by its Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the Police would view such action with all seriousness.

It stressed that the Police would not tolerate any act that would undermine all efforts aimed at flattening the Curve of COVID - 19 in the state.

He stated:  "It has come to the notice of Ogun State Police Command that some religious leaders in the state are preparing to open their various religious centers for people to converge in total disobedience to both the state and federal government directives.
"The command hereby appeal to such religious leaders in both Islamic and Christian faith who may be having such intention to have a change of mind because the security agencies in the state will view such with all seriousness. 

"The command will not tolerate any act capable of undermining the determination of the state and federal government to fight the covid 19 pandemic to standstill.

"The commissioner of police therefore wishes to use this medium to remind all religious leaders that the ban on all forms of gathering be it social or religious is still in force. He also admonished all and sundry to cooperate with the government in its efforts to make the state coronavirus free."
