Travel ban breach: Senate wants security agents probed for alleged complicity

The Senate has directed the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu and heads of all security agencies to investigate the alleged complicity of their officers in the breach of the curfew and ban on non-essential interstate travels and punish the offenders.

It asked the IGP and the Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps to fully enforce the presidential orders as well as ensure that their various commands cooperate with respective state authorities in enforcing all the protocols aimed at rolling back the COVID-19 pandemic.

The resolutions followed a motion on Tuesday by Senator Ike Ekweremadu (Enugu West) who expressed worry over the rate at which Nigerians crisscross the country despite the subsisting order.

He said this was worsened by the dubious concealment of people in food-carrying vehicles.

The Senate condemned the barefaced breach of the presidential orders and urged Nigerians to strictly comply with them for their own safety and to quicken the nation’s victory over the COVID-19 pandemic.
