Police shoots 2-armed robbers dead in Rivers
The Niger State Police Command has arrested 595 persons for allegedly violating the COVID-19 lockdown order across the state.

Police Commissioner Adamu Usman stated this while speaking yesterday with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna, the state capital.

Usman said the command had secured the conviction of 504 of them through mobile courts in different part of the state.

The police chief said the convicts were sentenced to various terms of imprisonment or given option of fine.

He said the breach of the existing restriction order by some people resorting to night travels would not be tolerated in the state.

Usman noted that such would be counter-productive and undermine the tireless efforts of the state government at curbing the spread of COVID-19.

He said intelligence indicated that transport workers, especially inter-state operators, had continued to defy the lockdown order by embarking on night trips.
