A Niger Delta human rights activist, Comrade Chief Mulade Sheriff has urged Deltans to support the State Government’s effort to curb the spread of the killer COVID-19 coronavirus.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Warri on Thursday, Chief Sheriff Mulade who is the Ibe-sorimowei of Gbaramatu Kingdom, condemned the incident that led to the death of one Mr. Joseph Pessu in Warri, Delta State.
While sympathizing with the family of the slain Warri youth, Comrade Mulade urged Deltans to cooperate with security operatives during the 14 days stay at home, as everyone is duty bound to carry out government directives especially in enforcing the restriction of movement to prevent the spread of covid-19 virus into Delta State.
He also called for calm and urged security agents to discharge their duties professionally, as it is their responsibility to protect lives and properties of Nigerians.
He commended Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for the measures put in place to ensure adequate security during the stay-at-home precautionary period, to curb the dreaded Covid-19 pandemic.
He strongly appealed to Nigerians particularly Deltans to be vigilant and share useful information with relevant authorities, especially Government, security agencies to rid the State of criminally minded opportunists.
