Kaduna State Deputy Governor, Dr Hadiza Balarabe has cautioned residents of the state to avid by rules and regulation on the ongoing curfew or gets it extended.
He wanted residents to utilised the two days window to restock food supplies.
Balarabe who handed down this warning on Monday said the government has ordered security agents to deal decisively with anybody who continues to flout the rule.
A statement issued by Special Adviser to Governor Nasir El-Rufai on Media and Communication, Mr Muyiwa Adekeye, said, the Deputy Governor was alarmed that some people take the Coronavirus disease for granted, which explains why they are defying the lockdown.
Kaduna State government had reviewed the 24-hour lockdown last Wednesday, by giving a two-day window of Tuesday and Wednesday every week, to enable residents to buy food and restock other essential commodities.
The Deputy Governor noted that the restriction of movement has been serially violated, while threatening to revert to the 24-hour lockdown.
