The Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu , has lamented the influx of people from other states despite the ban on inter – state movement .
Speaking through his Special Adviser on Special Duties , Dr Doyin Odebowale , who visited the state boundaries on Sunday , alleged that the police were frustrating the effort of the government at containing the spread of the deadly disease by allowing people to enter the state after paying a bribe to the police .
Addressing the policemen , Odebowale said, “ You people are supposed to turn back any unauthorised vehicles but you allow them to pass through. You are corrupt . You are not doing your work . ”
However , the head of the police team , Mr Ebisine Amy , denied the allegation , saying the policemen at the boundary were doing the work professionally.
“ We don ’t collect money from anybody and no vehicle has passed through this place . My men are doing their work accordingly,” he said .
The Chairman of the Inter – ministerial Committee on COVID – 19 who is also the state Commissioner for Health , Dr Wahab Adegbenro , said the state was doing everything within its power to stop the spread of the pandemic .
