A video which went viral on social media showed Adeoye saying his son, who had travelled from Lagos to Ekiti in violation of lockdown measures, should be kept in an isolation centre for 14 days because he did not have a place for him to be quarantined.

The Governor’s words below 👇👇

Today, I appointed Mr. Adeoye, father of the young man who sneaked into Ekiti state, as a COVID-19 Response Ambassador in Ekiti State. I am proud of Mr Adeoye as a principled Ekiti man and I salute his courage in helping us keep Ekiti safe. Mr. Adeoye will help to propagate the message as a member of the COVID-19 Task Force @Ekiti_COVID19 in the State.
