As part of the measures to check the spread of COVID-19, the Ekiti State Government has begun the fumigation of markets and other public places in the state.
Commissioner of Environment, Gbenga Agbeyo, said the government will maximize all measures to ensure the state is safe.
He noted that the step is a preventive measure and the state government determined to spare no measure to combat this enemy of humanity because we see this as a necessity.
Agbeyo, however, appealed to the people of the state to endure the pains that could accompany the lockdown period in the interest of safety.
The state has been under lockdown and curfew for a period 14 days which will expire on April 13.
The task force in charge assured that the exercise will be spread to schools, hospitals and other public places
