The government meanwhile has dismissed as “completely false and mischievous” the allegation on social media that Deputy Governor and Chairman of the Kwara State Technical Committee on COVID-19 Kayode Alabi slapped a policeman.

“The allegation is the figment of the imagination of those peddling it. There is no truth to it whatsoever and we urge members of the public to ignore the wicked campaign of calumny,” the statement added.
