The Ilorin branch of Shoprite has introduced ‘no face masks, no entry’ system to its customers as part of efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus in Kwara State.
A journalist who visited the shopping on Wednesday observed that the management of the mall had provided hand sanitisers for customers who must use it before they are allowed into the mall.
When the journalist 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.
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.
