The Closure for both private and public moto parks has been ordered by the Anambra State state Government barely hour from when the index case of coronavirus was announced.
Adazi Nnukwu in Anaocha Local Government in the state was the very first person to test positive to the virus and he has suddenly disappeared, causing panic for the officials.
“After the result was made known, the patient disappeared”, a source told Punch.
During a public service announcement, the commissioner for transport in the state said anybody that goes contrary to the lockdown order in the motor park would “incur the wrath of the government.”
The statement read in part;
“The ministry of transport wishes to inform all owners and managers of public and private parks in Anambra State that all parks are hereby closed.
“This is to ensure the containment and spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the state.
“Please, all concerned must adhere to this directive with immediate effect. Anyone who goes contrary to this directive will incur the wrath of the government.”
The index case reportedly came to the state from Lagos – Nigeria’s epicenter of the pandemic.
