Plateau: 10 Mobile Courts to try violators of Lockdown Order

The Plateau state government has set up 10 Mobile Courts to try violators of the “no movement” order during the period of total lockdown in the state.

In a statement by the State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Dan Manjang, the establishment of the mobile courts is meant to ensure enforcement and compliance to the directive of government aimed at protecting citizens from the corona virus pandemic and also ensure that the entire state is fumigated.

The statement advised members of the public to comply with the order while those exempted because of their essential services are to carry their identify card at all times.

The government also appealed to citizens to bear with the unusual situation and make sacrifices because the problem is not peculiar to Plateau state but a global challenge.

While urging security agencies to be firm in enforcing compliance, the government wants them to remain professional and observe all rules of engagement, warning that any security personnel who over reach his mandate by engaging in corrupt conduct or brutality will be held accountable.

Meanwhile, the state government has given out situation room Emergency response numbers for members of the public to call should the need arise as follow: Glo 07057326212 and Etisalat 08186015907.
