Coronavirus: FG To Use Police, Military To Enforce Social Distancing by LosC: 2:48pm On Mar 23
The federal government of Nigeria has said it will deploy the military and police to enforce social distancing as part of efforts to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus disease.

Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, disclosed this while briefing newsmen in Abuja on Monday.

The minister deplored some religious leaders’ decision to flout directives to avoid large gatherings.

Some mosques and churches opened for prayers and service on Friday and Sunday respectively against the government’s directive.

And the minister said: “The Federal Government is aware that some political and religious leaders have either denied the existence of coronavirus or have defied the directives to avoid a large gathering.

“Leaders of all hues must show great responsibility at this time. They must avoid putting the lives of not just their followers but also those of the general public in danger.

“Nigerians too must take responsibility, do what they are requested to do to stay safe and stop blaming others. For those who would continue to willfully flout the directives aimed at checking the spread of this disease, the long arm of the law will soon catch them.”

He said Nigerians should be ready for tougher measures to contain the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

The Presidential Task Force on the Control of Coronavirus had recommended some tougher measures which would be released later today or tomorrow morning, he disclosed.

“We want to appeal to Nigerians to continue to support the efforts of the government at all levels to defeat this coronavirus. We are hoping for the best in our efforts to contain the disease, but we are prepared for the worst.

“The truth is that things may yet get worse than it is now, hence the need for all hands to be on deck. Tougher decisions may yet be on the way to contain this disease. But whatever decision is taken will be in the best interest of Nigerians,” Mohammed said.

Soooo will they be performing flanking maneuvers and setting up ambushes? How will they "fight" COVID-19? Could they be prepositioning personal and equipment for something bigger in the coming weeks?
7.2 billion minds on the planet and no one can come up with a fix for this? Let’s start offering rewards to the first person that comes up with a solution. These scientists are in their governments pocket so they can’t be trusted

A friend told me months ago,. he inspected a Container and he saw cars full of military vehicles with the UN emblem on them? Not sure why I thought of those stories, guess the FG getting all their extra power just triggered the memory of those stories. It's like we woke up one day to a Koontz novel coming to life, strange times we're living in when the world hits the pause button. Imagine the stories that will be told to future generations about 2020.

Desperate times calls for desperate measures.
We just love what the Zimbabwean policemen did to the church members that floated flouted the 'worship God at home' order in their country yesterday.
The video 'sweet' die. wink

Our leaders should enforce all it takes for people to be sensible in this perilous times.
And the remaining religious leaders that refused to comply so far should do the right thing.
Our Lord and Saviour answers prayers from any corner you are!
They who have ears, let them hear....

What we all need is to be very very careful of our surroundings and staying at home will protect you from the virus more than 90%
That should be adhere to.
Listen to the FG and your state government to keep your self, family and country safe.

No pandemic in the history of the world has been like this Coronavirus issue : CNN



This is what our Holy Book told us concerning this particular issue.........

A measure that will affect only the poor. Go and sensitize people appropriately and stop deploying force.
