Police IG, Mohammed Adamu, has sent instructions across all Zonal Assistant Inspectors-General of Police and Commands’ Commissioners of Police to ensure that essential workers are exempted from the restriction of movement meant to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

According to Frank MBA, the Force’s spokes man, essential workers listed are medical personnel, firefighters, ambulance services, journalists among others.

The aforementioned groups are “exempted from the restriction of movement associated with both the partial lockdown and the national curfew across the federation.”

“The Inspector General of Police, IGP Mohammed A. Adamu has therefore directed all Zonal Assistant Inspectors General of Police and Commands Commissioners of Police to give effect to these exemptions whilst enforcing the restriction orders,” Mr Mba said.
