Ogun State Government Stipulates Punishment for Violators of Compulsory Wearing of Face Mask: Read the punishment

   Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State

The Ogun State Government says the compulsory wearing of face masks in public will commence in the State on Friday, 1st May, warning that violators will spend 14 days in any of the State's Isolation Centres and made to perform community service.

On the issue of violation of face mask order, I think maybe by the time we are going to implement this face mask order, I will be able to reel out what the punishment of the violators would be.
“But rest assured that we will arrest you if you don’t wear a face mask. In fact when we arrest you, we take you to an isolation centre because we will believe that you want to intentionally inflict or afflict someone with COVID-19.
”That’s why you are not wearing your face mask.
“So, we will isolate you for 14 days during which we make you do community service. So, in your best interest, please ensure that if you are going out, wear your face mask,” the governor said.
