A Mobile Court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has ordered that four parks and gardens in the territory be sealed off for two weeks for violating the COVID-19 protocols.
Mr Ikharo Atta, Head of Media and Enlightenment of the Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) COVID-19 Protocols Enforcement Taskforce, disclosed this at a news conference on Monday in Abuja
Attah said that the affected gardens were Eden Park and Garden in Utako, Byuan Resources Ltd., Skychef Park and Garden as well as 7th Option Park and Leisure Services, all in Garki 2, Abuja.
He also disclosed that 12 persons arrested at the gardens “very late in the night’’, would be arraigned after the two weeks.
“What we observe is that most of them (gardens) operate beyond the period (allowed).
“The persons who were in the shops didn’t comply with physical distancing. Face mask wasn’t there at all and no hand washing points.
“They were totally in breach of the COVID-19 protocol and the judge in his wisdom, Magistrate Egbe Arafe, issued the seal off order for two weeks.
“After the two weeks, we will now come back to the court and continue the trial,’’ Attah said.
Attah, who said that the task force would focus on night clubs, advised gardens and parks operators `to do the needful’.
He also said that the authority would not yield to undue demands by kids and parents for FCTA to reopen Millennium Park, Jabi Lake and other parks shut down due to COVID-19
He said that the measure was to save the lives of the people. (NAN)
