Yesterday, the video of a man named Mr Femi Adeoye, who berated his son for flouting the lockdown rule of engaging in non-essential travel, surfaced online. His son sneaked into Ekiti, from Lagos and Abeokuta but was turned down by his father, for ignoring his warning and insisted he must be quarantined for at least 14 days.
Mr Adeoye the principled man that outed his son for sneaking into Ekiti state and flouting the lockdown rule of engaging in non-essential travel.
He’s now a COVID-19 response Ambassador in Ekiti state duly appointed by the Ekiti state Governor.
