The Ekiti State Government has prosecuted 37 persons who violated the April sanitation exercise in the state capital on Saturday.

The offenders, who were arrested during the monthly sanitation exercise held in Ado-Ekiti, were charged to court immediately for disobeying the sanitation exercise law in the state.

The presiding judge, Magistrate Olubunmi Bamidele, after listening to the submission of the prosecutor, charged all 37 offenders with a fine of N5000 each.

In a related development, the state government has warned traders and members of the commercial driver unions operating in the state against violating the monthly environmental exercise.

The government also pleaded with the security agencies to collaborate with the environmental officers for full enforcement of mandatory restrictions during the exercise.

Ekiti State deputy governor, Mrs Monisade Afuye, gave the warning while monitoring the monthly environmental exercise in Ikole Local Government Area of the state.

The deputy governor visited Ikole Local Government, Ikole West, Ajoni and Kajola local council development areas.

Mrs Afuye condemned the action of the traders and commercial drivers in towns like Iworoko, Ifaki, Oye, Ayegbaju and Itapa, who were operating in full swing, despite the 7-10 am restriction announced by the government.

The Chairmen of Ajoni and Ikole West LCDAs, Hon Michael Ogungbemi and Mr Kayode Ogunsakin, said the presence of the deputy governor and other top government functionaries makes the exercise more successful in the council.
