Our correspondent gathered the team led by one Barr. Nkoro sealed the hotels due to what it described as public negligence & poor compliance to COVID-19 protocols as directed by the government by the hotel owners.

A source who spoke with our correspondent warned that the people who failed to comply with the state government’s directives on COVID-19 will soon be arrested and prosecuted at the mobile court.

n a related development, the Abia State government has banned all night clubs and cultural activities in the state.

The state government in a statement by the chairman of the state COVID-19 committee and Secretary to the State Government, Barr. Chris Ezem on Monday threatened that eateries and hoteliers who contravene the COVID-19 protocols by the state government would pay N100, 000:00 fine.

According to Ezem, burials and wedding ceremonies are now restricted to 50 persons while churches are to accommodate 50 persons per stream.

This is even as the state government has made wearing of face masks compulsory, warning that any contravention will attract a fine of N5, 000:00.
