He said the state government was not happy with the rising case of COVID-19 in the state.

He stated that the COVID-19 committee will meet with Muslim leaders in the state to enlighten them more on the need to observe all precautionary measures guiding COVID-19.

“We have been engaging the leadership and we hope there will be an improvement. We expect them to improve on their activities. There was not much social distancing in the mosques and we are not satisfied.

“We will get in touch with the leadership of the Muslim community. We are getting more cases and we are not happy. We don’t want a situation where the government locks down the state again. If it continues, the government will lock down the state.”

Also speaking, the state Commissioner for Health, Dr Wahab Adegbenro, said the compliance level was about 60 per cent.
