The lockdown enforcement team of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) on Tuesday night intercepted vehicles conveying over 43 passengers to different parts of the country.
The occupants of the vehicles, mainly commercial buses, were found to have breached the curfew imposed on the territory.
They were reportedly heading to Kano, Niger and Kaduna states; a few of them from neighbouring states were also heading to some parts of the FCT.
Chairman of the Enforcement Team, Ikharo Attah, addressed reporters on Wednesday in Abuja.
He said the violators were apprehended at the popular AYA Roundabout in Asokoro District of the FCT.
According to him, the drivers and motorists were immediately turned back and escorted by security personnel out of the FCT.
“Some of the FCT-bound passengers, including a woman and her two children, came in from Benue State. Despite the curfew imposed by President Muhammadu Buhari, many persons are still adamant on breaking the order,” Attah said.
Also, the Anambra State Police Command arrested 42 violators of Federal Government-imposed curfew in the state.
The state government also impounded eight vehicles while enforcing the order.
The command’s spokesman Haruna Mohammed, a Superintendent of Police (SP), stated this yesterday in Awka, the state capital, while addressing reporters.
Haruna said the suspects were served with arraignment notices and later granted bail.
