“All security agencies in the state are to enforce total compliance with the lockdown order.

“All citizens and residents of the state should continue to adhere to the NCDC guideline as the state still remain COVID-19 free.”

Besides the current lockdown order in Kogi, recall that the state has been at loggerheads with the Federal Government and NCDC over Bello’s claim that COVID-19 was not in the state.

He had also refused to allow the agency enter the state to conduct any test and had actually threatened to quarantine the team of NCDC.
