Arrest Anyone That’s Not Wearing Face Masks – Gov. Ayade Orders

Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State has asked security operatives to arrest any resident not going about with a face mask.
He gave the order to prevent the spread of the virus from neighbouring states. He added that the directive will take effect from Friday.
“Following the proliferation of new cases of coronavirus in neighbouring states, the Cross River state governor, Sir Ben Ayade, has imposed new restrictions on residents of the state as follows,” he said.
“No citizen or resident of the state will be allowed to leave home without a face mask from Friday 3rd, April 2020; failure to adhere to this directive will lead to the arrest and quarantine of the offenders for 14 days.
“The Cross River State garment factory has been mandated to produce face masks to be distributed free to citizens and residents alike to meet with the demand.”
He said anyone who is unable to get masks from the state government before Friday are advised to purchase theirs.
Ayade also reiterated the ban on public gatherings, saying only markets where foodstuff is sold may open. He also ordered the state’s borders shut to vehicular and human movement.
