No fewer than 76 persons who attended a birthday party on Saturday at Lavender Court, near Oniru, Victoria Island area of Lagos, have been arrested for allegedly violating COVID-19 safety protocols.
This is just as the police impounded 136 vehicles in the state for breaking night curfew while operatives of the Delta State Police Command apprehended 46 persons for allegedly violating the curfew imposed by the government to curb the spread of the virus.
The police spokesperson in Lagos, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, disclosed these in a statement on Saturday.
The Delta State Commissioner of Police, Mr Ari Ali, while presenting the suspects in Asaba on Saturday, stated that they were among 98 suspects arrested across the state for various crimes, including armed robbery, cultism, kidnapping and rape.
He said, “We are all aware that in the effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, the state government imposed a curfew from 10 pm to 4 am.
“But these 46 young men and women, arrested in different spots in the state, chose to violate the curfew order that is meant for our common good.”
