It is so unfortunate what transpired yesterday, but this should not lead to break down of law and order because already we have a war ravaging not only our state and country, but the whole world taking lives of hundreds of hundreds. It is important that as a citizen, we adhere to government directive because this instruction is for the good of all. Let us imagine what would have happen if coronavirous should find it way into our dear state, but thank God for giving us a proactive leader in the person of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, an astute administrator, who quickly mobilized men and resources to nip in the bud any where this epidemics may wants to roar it head from.
Now that His Excellency has directed investigation to be carried out on the remote cause of the misunderstanding, l plead with all aggrieved parties to sheath their swords and allow the committee to do their job, while all hands continue to be on deck against our common enemy, conoranvirous, the statement adds.”
