FG releases more names of COVID-19 violators


Few days after, the federal government has released up to 120 names among the second batch of travellers who violated the imposed travel advisory.

The chairman of the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, who revealed this in a statement, said the violators have been declared Persons of Interest after evading the mandatory seven-day quarantine for persons arriving from restricted countries.

The statement issued on Thursday and made available to veritynewsonline added that the travel passports of the defaulters would be ceased for a period not less than one year.

Names of 132 violators were listed in the statement.

This is in addition to the 90 violators that made the first list released on Sunday.
