Ebonyi state government Thursday said passengers/commuters would be restricted from going in and out of the state from Saturday, March 28, 2020.
This, the government said, is another measure to ensure that corona virus does not infiltrate the state.
A statement released by the secretary to the government, Dr Kenneth Ugbala said indigenes of the state were advised to reach their people on the instruction as it warned that anyone found violating the order would be arraigned before the COVID-19 Examination Room.
The statement reads: “This is to inform the general public that Ebonyi state government has taken further steps to ensure that COVID-19 does not enter into the state.
“Government shall from Saturday 28th March, 2020, stop all passenger vehicles from entering the state. There will be restriction of passengers/commuters coming in and out of Ebonyi state.
“The position of Ebonyi state government is that everybody should stay where he/she is until this unfortunate scourge of coronavirus is over.
“The government will like Ebonyians to inform their family members, visitors, friends and well-wishers to be aware of this directive as there will be no exemption to its enforcement.”
