IN VIEW of the federal and state government’s directives for citizens to stay at home, wash their hands regularly with soap and running water, avoiding crowded environment to contain further spread of the pandemic, National Light observed that many church denominations did not hold church service on Sunday.
The denominations included; St John’s Catholic Church, Mountain of Fire and Miracles, Arise and Shine Deliverance Ministry, among other denominations in Enugwu- Agidi, Njikoka Local Government Area.
At Dominion City Church, National Light gathered that the church has been divided into smaller groups to avoid being crowded.
In an interview, one of the pastors who pleaded anonymity revealed that breaking into smaller units is according to the plan of God concerning the church, to reach many souls as it was in the days of the early Christians who gather in houses for fellowship.
He urged Christians to use the opportunity provided by the sit at home directive to seek God and make amends of their sinful ways.
However, at Oganiru Primary School field, Enugwu-Agidi, a group of boys were seen playing football. While speaking with some of them, they explained that though they believe the existence of the disease, they can’t stop playing football, saying it’s a way of exercising themselves.
At the community’ s daily market, National Light observed that though most of the traders have hand washing buckets as they engage in their daily businesses, they don’t often wash their hands and also don’t adhere to social distancing directive as they were clustered by customers.
One of the traders who pleaded anonymity revealed that they have the buckets for fear of state taskforce on compliance.
