Even when a pandemic like the COVID-19 outbreak is threatening the human race, some hard-headed individuals still won’t obey laws given to protect them. Such is the case with the recent FCT police command’s disclosure that it has currently impounded 106 motorcycles, tricycles and cars belonging to violators of government COVID-19 lockdown directive.

He mentioned that these vehicles were seized from violators in Zuba, Mpape, Life-Camp, Kado, Jabi, Karu, Dutse Alhaji, Nyanya and many other parts of the FCT. In his public statement, Mr Manzah said;
“The Joint Operation Task -Team for the Enforcement of Presidential Lockdown order on Covid-19 in FCT, under the leadership of CP Bala Ciroma, the FCT Commissioner of Police has impounded Fifty-one (51) Cars, Nine (9) Tricycles and Forty-six (46) Motorcycles in FCT for violating the subsisting presidential lockdown directive aimed at containing the further spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The social distancing advice and government lockdown directives are not meant to punish citizens but instead to help curb the spread of the deadly Coronavirus infection in Nigeria. Naijauto strongly advises car owners and motorists to adhere strictly to this new rule for the sake of humanity.
