Share This

Commander, Rapid Response Squad (RRS) DCP Olatunji Disu today appealed to Muslim faithfuls gathering for Jumat prayers in two mosques in Agege Lagos to comply with the Lagos Order on religious gathering and social distancing as a way of preventing the spread of COVID 19.

The two mosques which are less than 100 meters from each other and located at Isale – Oja, Agege Motor Road, Agege had more than 25 faithfuls each in attendance praying and performing ablution

The monitoring was prompted by the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Hakeem Odumosu’s directive that Commander RRS go after defiant religious group that are not complying with government orders on COVID 19.

DCP Disu appealed to some of the faithfuls to comply with the State Government’s directive on religious gathering and social distancing, adding that the order was given in the larger interest of the society.

The leaders thanked DCP Tunji Disu and departed the scenes peacefully.

Meanwhile, the team again sent to their different homes about 160 children who had clustered in Morkaz Street, Agege waiting at the gate of a prominent leader in the street for a dole out.

According to one of the religious leaders in the street, who did not want his name mentioned, stated that the children were waiting for Alhaji for a dole out but unknown to them, he had travelled to Kano State.

He added that he was the one that chased the children away from the entrance gate of the man last week because he is aware that he had gone to Kano. He noted that Alhaji usually give them money and goodies on Fridays whenever he is around.

He reiterated the readiness of the residents of Morkas street to comply with the order of the State Government acknowledging that the sit - at - home order was in the interest of the people.

Other places visited by the team included: Ikeja, Oba Akran, Agege, Iyana Ipaja, Abule Egba, Ile – Epo, Orile Agege, Ekoro Road, Ijaiye, Ajasa Command, Iju – Fagba, Ifako – Ijaiye, Ogba – Aguda, Omole and Agidingbi.
