Security agents must stop violation of interstate lockdown, says NGF

Security agents

The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Wednesday lamented Nigerians’ non-compliance with guidelines on the gradual reopening of the economy.

The task force Chairman, Boss Mustapha, who stated this at the PTF  press conference in Abuja, said disregard for the ban on interstate movements and other guidelines was an indication of the danger ahead.

But the Nigeria Governors’ Forum told The Akelicious that security agencies must live up to their responsibilities  by stopping violation of the ban on interstate movements.

The NGF stated this as the Arewa Consultative Forum hit northern governors on the shoddy implementation of the evacuation of Almajirai to their states of origin.

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), had, in his broadcast on April 27, banned interstate movements.

The PTF a few days later issued guidelines on social distancing and the ban on any gathering of  more than 20 people.

But despite the ban on interstate movements, trucks carrying youths from the northern parts of the country have been finding their way into the south.
