Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba on Saturday announced ban on travels in and out of the state with effect from Sunday, March 29, 2020.
The announcement is contained in a press statement by Alhaji Hassan Mijinyawa, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor in Jalingo.
“The decision to close the state’s land borders was taken as part of continued efforts by the state government to protect the state from the spread of the dreaded corona virus,” it stated.
The statement directs the commissioner of police and the state commandant of National security and Civil Defence Corps to ensure strict compliance.
Ishaku had earlier banned social gatherings of more that 20 persons in the state to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.
