In bid to check the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, Akwa Ibom Police Command spread its dragnet across the three Senatorial Districts and arrested 121 violators of compulsory use of face masks at public places in the state.

A press release issued by CSP N-nudam Fredrick, the state Police Public Relations Officer on Friday, said this was in line with the provisions of the Quarantine and Restriction of Movement (Second Amendment) Regulations, 2020.

Fredrick stated, “The arrested offenders would be arraigned in the special courts established in the three Senatorial Districts to serve as a deterrent to others.

“Consequently, the Police Command enjoins the good people of the State to always use facemasks in public places as the Command will continue to arrest and prosecute violators,” he warned.
