The secretary of the committee, Mr Fisayo Falodi in a statement obtained by The Precision NG in Akure, the Ondo state capital, said the committee was set up as part of efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus and the adverse effect of the lockdown on the vulnerable in the community and its adjoining towns.
