Dr Oladiji said, “Around 1:00 a.m, we got information that some people were clubbing at Kwara Hotel. The Deputy Governor in my accompany and some security officials raided the club and we arrested so many boys and girls within the age range of 20 to 30.

“Around 2:00a.m., we brought them to the Hajj camp (Quarantine Centre). We made them comfortable overnight, and early this morning, we took their samples for COVID-19. The arrest, which may lead to prosecution, is to send the signal that we cannot tolerate such conduct. Violations will henceforth attract strong response from the government.”
