The chairman, Borno state High powered Response Team for the control and prevention of COVID-19 in the State, Umar Usman Kadafur has expressed dissatisfaction with the level of non-compliance by commuters on the restriction order of movement in and out of the state recently enforced.
The chairman of the committee stated this when he visited Njimtilo village to monitor the level of compliance on the directiveon restricting movement of vehicles in and out of the state to prevent the outbreak of corona virus in the state.
Kadafur and some other members of the committee upon arrival at the Njimtilo gate discovered that there are heavy movement of vehicles in and out of the state which is an indication that the security personnel are not enforcing the restriction order accordingly.
The Deputy Governor directed the total closure of the gate and asked all those coming into the state capital to return back to where they came from and urged the security personnel to live up to expectation.
Kadafur said the restriction order is not done to punish travelers but rather to protect the life of people against the deadly disease stressing that the reopening of the gate on Monday was done to allow those who did not have adequate information on the restriction order.
He directed the security personnel to ensure that henceforth, nobody is allowed entry in and out of the state while the committee according to him would embark on continuous strict monitoring to ensure compliance.
