The statement reads in parts: “No citizen or resident of the state will be allowed to leave home without a face mask from Friday 3rd, April 2020.
“Failure to adhere to this directive will lead to the arrest and quarantine of the offenders for 14 days.
“The Cross River State garment factory has been mandated to produce face masks to be distributed free to citizens and residents alike to meet with the demand”.
Ayade further directed those who for one reason or the other are unable to get masks from the government before the new restrictions kick in, to purchase theirs from shops selling the item.
He added that all public gatherings remain banned, markets should remain closed except where foodstuff is sold.
And all exit and entry points into the state are now completely shut. No human or vehicular movement will be allowed into the state under any disguise.[NewsNaira]
