- Police have scattered a huge number of people who had gathered for a wedding ceremony
- A video that was recorded during the incident shows hundreds of people fleeing the venue
- It is strongly advised for everyone to protect themselves from COVID-19 and not wait for the armed forces to compel them to do so
A wedding ceremony was turned into a ground for commotion after policemen stormed the event that was being held with no regard for COVID-19 preventive protocols.
In the video sighted by Legit.ng on Twitter, hundreds of people were captured fleeing the grounds after the police arrived at the marriage ceremony.
Although not explicitly stated, a look at the video shows that it was an Islamic wedding as many people were seen dressed like Muslims.

Following the protocols to prevent COVID-19 is supposed to be a personal commitment that does not need to be forced on anyone before it gets implemented.
However, it appears that most people have not come to the true understanding of the need to protect themselves from the disease that has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives around the globe.
It is only hoped that the non-adherence to the COVID-19 preventive measures does not result in an uncontrollable spike in cases and deaths.
In a similar report, Legit.ng reported that seven people contracted coronavirus after a couple ignored travel warnings and went ahead with their dream Bali wedding.
Legit.ng gathered that the couple identified as Matt and Jess Muir got married at the Villa Shalimar in Canggu on March 20, before returning to their home in Newcastle.
One of the guests that contracted the deadly disease said that the wedding was the greatest wedding ever.
While some people are defying the lockdown to hold a big wedding, Unsha Bakker and Farzan, a happy Muslim couple, were caught in a quagmire when social distancing was imposed and people were asked to stay away from mass gatherings. And they cannot get together until they got married before God so the two agreed to a zoom wedding.
