Breach of Entry-Points Closure by Security PersonnelMonday, June 8th, 2020 | News
The attention of the Akwa Ibom State Government has been drawn to a disturbing trend whereby security operatives indulge in the illegal use of their personal cars, and in some cases official vehicles, to transport passengers through our entry points into the state.
This act is highly condemnable and unprofessional, especially against the back drop of the current nationwide ban on interstate travel occasioned by the surge of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Henceforth, all vehicles coming into the state; including security vehicles and those driven or owned by security personnel, will be subjected the prescribed COVID-19 entry points protocols. All service commanders in the state have been duly informed of this emerging trend.
While the state government is leaving no stone unturned in the fight against COVID-19, all citizens and residents are enjoined to continue to contribute their quota by way of vigilance and compliance to all safety guidelines.
