On Wednesday April 15, a mass protest was held by the women of Sapele, Warri in Delta State to express their displeasure at the extension of COVID-19 lockdown by the state Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa
Taking to the streets, they were joined by youths in the area who also added that they were voicing out their frustration because they could no longer contend with hunger in their houses.
The two-week extension is to further help curb the spread of Coronavirus in the state. Okowa had on Tuesday announced the extension of the sit-at-home order and dusk to dawn curfew to tackle the pandemic.
They said government had failed to provide them with palliatives to cushion the effects of the movement restriction order in place. See clips from the protest below (Viewers discretion is advised).
