COVID-19: Adamawa Police Warns Against Night Journey 

The Periscope reporter

The Commissioner of Police, Adamawa State Command, Audu A Madaki has warned the members of the organised transport sector to comply with the restrictions order or face the law.

In a press release signed by the Police Public Relations Officer DSP Suleiman Yahya Nguroje Thursday, the CP warned that those who continued to breach the existing restrictions order by resorting to night travels and overloading passengers would face the wrath of the law.

The CP described the violators of restrictions order as saboteurs who activities have “proven to be counter-productive as it undermines the tireless efforts of the  government at curbing the spread of the deadly COVID-19 disease.

“This warning is sequel to intelligence at the disposal of the Command showing that road transport workers, especially interstate operators, town service drivers and tricycles operators have continued to defy the lockdown order and cessation of movements as emplaced by the  Government as they continue to embark on night journeys and overloading passengers.

“Consequently, the CP has directed Assistant Commissioners of Police and DPOs to ensure full implementation of the restrictions order, especially as it relates to night travel without being unmindful of categories of exempted persons and the fundamental human rights of citizens.

“The CP, while restating that the lockdown at boarder areas is for 24 hours daily and that night hours are not excluded, calls on the leadership of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) and the Public Transport Owners of Nigeria Association amongst others, to warn their members to strictly adhere to the restrictions order of the  Government, warning that violators will be made to face the full wrath of the law.

“Meanwhile, the CP appreciates the understanding and cooperation of all in this trying period and assures that the Command will continue to do its best to protect the lives and properties of citizens.

“The CP equally enjoins all people to take advantage of the command’s emergency GSM  numbers to give useful information and report  incidents.
