Covid-19: Fayose urges provision of nose masks, hand gloves for security men

Former governor of Ekiti State,  Ayodele Fayose has called on the
Inspector General of Police (IGP) and heads of other security agencies
in the country to ensure that their officers who are enforcing the
lock down across the country are well protected against the dreaded
Coronavirus.

He said security agents on duty across the country must be made to
wear nose mask and hand gloves.

Speaking on Saturday, through his Media Aide,  Lere Olayinka,  the
former governor lamented that lives of security agents,  especially
policemen were being put at risk by allowing them to go on duty
without adequate protection.

He said apart from nose mask and hand gloves,  security agents must be
provided with hand sanitizer so as to prevent community transmission
of the Coronavirus.

The former governor said that by not protecting themselves against the
virus,  the security agents were  capable of transmitting the virus to
the same members of the public they are supposed to be protecting.

Fayose,  who admonished the security agents,  especially policemen to
take their health with utmost importance at this time,  said it was
sad that most security men enforcing the lock down were more interest
in what they can get from members of the public,  willing to go out,
instead of their own well-being.

He expressed fear of the Coronavirus spreading to rural communities
with limited access to sanitation and healthcare services, saying
everything must be done to prevent the impending disaster.
