Wike Arrests more Lockdown Offenders
RIVERS State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Saturday arrested two more violators of the lockdown of Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas of the state.
The arrests were ordered by the governor on Day Three of the lockdown.
Speaking while monitoring the compliance level of the lockdown in the two LGAs, Wike explained that the suspected violators would be prosecuted by the Office of the Attorney General and tested by officials of the Rivers State Ministry of Health.
The governor also inspected the state isolation centre, where the mobile courts would try another set of violators arrested by the State Task Force and security agencies enforcing the lockdown.
Wike, however, adjudged Saturday’s compliance level as above 95 percent.
Recall that the governor announced a 24-hour lockdown and a dusk-dawn curfew on Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas as part of the state government’s measures to check the spread of coronavirus.
