124 persons have been arrested and sentenced to community service for open defecation in Ogun State.
Special Adviser to Governor Dapo Abiodun on Environment and the Chief Executive Officer of the Ogun State Waste Management Authority (OGWAMA), Ola Oresanya made the announcement on Thursday December 2.
Oresanya who revealed that the offenders were arrested in various parts of the state, warned drivers of articulated vehicles and their cohorts to stop defecating on medians and roadsides while on stopovers.
Residents of the state were asked to visit public toilets provided by the state government for their convenience, instead of engaging in such unwholesome practice.
Oresanya also said that the state has mandated all petrol stations and eateries in the state to make their conveniences available for public use as part of their corporate social responsibility.
