…Alleges low level in North.
by Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna
Kaduna state government has commenced strict enforcement of compliance to second wave of COVID-19 pandemic in the state.
Security and civil enforcement agents on Wednesday took over strategic areas within the metropolis to ensure full compliance.
Some of the enforcement agents, who interacted with our correspondent, however, disclosed that even though, the compliant level is high, there was need to enforce more compliance in some areas, especially in Kaduna North where the compliant level is lower compared to Kaduna South.
On where the cases of the infection are higher, going by his observation, the Kaduna State Environmental Law Enforcement Authority (KASTELEA) officer, who could not mention his name, declined comment.
Unauthorized sources, however, revealed to our correspondent that the new waves of COVID-19 infection cases are higher in Kaduna North. The source also alleged that the level of enforcement and compliance is also quite higher in South than the North, but could not adduce any reason for his opinion.
An eyewitness, who boarded a Town Service bus, also collaborated with KASTELEA officer’s position, and shared that most commuters seen in Kawo Town bus services were going about without nose or facemasks.
We’ll keep the public posted on subsequent development in Kaduna on the rate of COVID-19 infection cases.
