The Ilorin branch of the Shoprite has introduced ‘no face masks, no entry’ system to its customers as part of efforts to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the state.
A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), who visited the shopping on Wednesday, observed that the management of the mall had provided hand sanitizers for customers who must use it before they are allowed into the mall.
When NAN correspondent approached the entrance of the shop, he was asked to go back because he was not wearing a mask.
The correspondent was then directed to a nearby pharmaceutical shop inside the Mall to buy a face mask which he put on before he was allowed in.
NAN reports that the pharmaceutical outfit took advantage of the policy to make brisk business as shoppers besieged the place to get face masks before being allowed into the mall.
