Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has said worship centres are to be reopened, tentatively on August 14.

Abiodun said this while addressing newsmen on Wednesday, at his Okemosan office, in Abeokuta.

The Governor informed that churches and mosques are to obey all the COVID-19 guidelines handed down to them.

He stressed that any worship centre that disobeys the laid down rules would be sanctioned.

The Governor spoke further that the weekend lockdown in Ogun State continues, adding that anybody who fails to wear face mask risks six months jail term.

While congratulating Islamic faithful on the 2020 Eid-el-Kabir, Abiodun forbade any form of gathering above 20 persons.

He urged Muslims to pray at home, saying there should be no any form of festivity.
