The pre-eminent Eyo group, the Eyo Adimu Orisha, has distributed cash and various food items to some residents of Isale Eko area of Lagos and environs as palliatives to cushion the effect of the Coronavirus lockdown.

This was contained in a statement jointly released by the leaders of the group, Chief Adebola Dosunmu, the Akinshiku of Lagos and chairman of Eyo Adimu, Chief Olumuyiwa Coker.

They noted the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the livelihood and sustenance of the people and hence the urgent need for the eyo group to come to the aid of the people by providing palliatives to them.

While stressing the importance of the lockdown as directed by the government, they called on the people of Lagos to continue to observe the stay at home order and follow all hygiene prescriptions by staying healthy.

"The Eyo Adimu Orisha group in Lagos found it important to rise to the occasion at this trying time to put together a reasonable amount of cash and food items as palliatives for our people.

"Covid-19 has disrupted how we live but it is a challenge we must cope with especially by respecting the stay at home order of the state government and living a hygienic life. We are confident Covid-19  will be defeated eventually but we must continue to stay safe."
The group also called on other socio-cultural bodies and organizations to support the people through donations or supplying food to the people.

Food items distributed include rice, beans, gari, semovita, palm oil and groundnut oil aside undisclosed amounts of cash.
