Following the renewed directive of the Governor of Abia State, Okezie Victor Ikpeazu (Ph.D) to the Ministry of Homeland Security to ensure total lockdown of all entry and exit points into Abia State, the Ministry of Homeland Security hereby advises all Abians, motorists and pedestrians to stay clear of all entry and exit boundary points, henceforth, in total compliance with the Executive Order of the Governor.
The Ministry of Homeland Security has deployed its personnel to mann all the borders and will arrest and handover any defaulter of such a directive for immediate prosecution.
Citizens are therefore advised to stay clear of the borders and abide by the lockdown directive as even the Federal Government of Nigeria is on the same page with respective states on the lock down.
The release therefore allows only those on exemption and essential duty which include, properly identified food items haulages, petroleum product tankers, medical and pharmaceutical products, journalists and communication company staff and security personnel on duty.
