The arrest, which may lead to prosecution, is to send the signal that we cannot tolerate such conduct. Violations will henceforth attract strong response from the government,” he said.

He said that the ban on night club activities remained in force in the state to prevent further spread of the virus.

Oladiji added that the clubbers violated the Kwara State Infectious Diseases Regulations, 2020, as well as the government’s subsisting ban on the congregation that is beyond 20 people, except in places of worship.

The government is considering other measures, including enforcement of the use of face mask in public, to flatten the curve of transmission of the virus.
