The Inspector-General of Police (I-G)Mohammed Adamu, has cautioned members of the organised transport sector against night journeys in violation of the existing restriction order by the Federal Government.
The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), DCP Frank Mba disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.
Adamu said the development was counterproductive and would undermine the efforts of the federal government in containing the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
The I-G therefore, directed Commissioners of Police to ensure full implementation of the restriction order, especially as it relates to night travels.
He said the warning was sequel to intelligence at the disposal of the Force showing that road transport workers, especially interstate operators, had continued to defy the lockdown order.
According to him, the lockdown is for 24 hours daily with night hours not excluded.
