The Federal Government of Nigeria made it compulsory for travellers who arrive Nigeria, within 14 days of visiting Brazil, Turkey, and India to embark on isolation. A mandate which some travellers still violate.
Now the presidential steering committee (PSC) has released a second list of 132 travellers who on Thursday came in through the Nnamdi Azikiwe international airport in Abuja and refused to isolate.
The travellers have, however, been directed to report to the nearest government health facility within the next 48 hours.
The PSC had on May 23 released a list of 90 travellers, who were accused of violating the protocol on mandatory self-siolation for passengers from Brazil, Turkey, and India.
The PSC added that further sanctions to be taken against the travellers are “disabling their travel passports for a period not less than one year, and cancellation of visas/permits of foreigners”.
