Central Nigeria’s Plateau State Government has set up 10 mobile courts to try violators of the statewide quarantine starting Thursday midnight.

The courts will enforce the seven-day quarantine to protect citizens from the Coronavirus disease, State Information Commissioner, Dan Manjang said, Thursday.

“Members of the public are therefore advised to comply with the “no movement” order while those exempted because of their essential services are to carry their identify cards at all times,” Manjang said in a press statement.

The State Governor, Simon Lalong, according to the Commissioner however wants securities to remain professional and observe all rules of engagement in enforcing the order.

“Any security personnel who overreaches his mandate by engaging in corrupt conduct or brutality will be held accountable,” he said.

A situation room, with emergency response numbers – 08186015907, 07057326212, the Commissioner said has been created for public use through the quarantine period.
