ABEOKUTA - Following the resumption of football leagues across Europe, Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has warned football lovers in the state to refrain from gathering at the football viewing centres or risk arrest.

Governor Abiodun made this known on Friday at his Oke-Mosan office in Abeokuta while addressing journalists on the weekly update of covid-19 pandemic.

He said the state government would not tolerate any operators who open the viewing centres against the social distance and lockdown order of both the state and federal government. 

The governor vowed that, both the fans and the viewing centre operators would be arrested and prosecuted.

"The viewing centres ideally fall under the event centre. Legally a viewing centre should not be operational during this lockdown period. 

"But let me sound a note of warning, we will arrest and prosecute anybody watching match at the viewing centre and the operators.

"Anybody that want to watch football match should watch it at the comfort of their room. We need to ensure the safety of our people and we will not tolerate anybody trying to undermine our efforts at flatten the curve of the spread."
