Committed to ensuring total compliance to the restriction order placed by the Federal Government to primarily avert unnecessary spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Corps Marshal, of road satety regulatory body in Nigeria, the Federal Road Safety Corps, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi has directed the Sector Commanders of FCT and Lagos State to work with their respective state authorities to ensure effective Mobile Court operations for violators of the Presidential Order. This directive also applies  to  other states  where mobile courts have been constituted  by State  Governments for the  same purpose.

According to the Corps Public Education Officer, Corps Commander Bisi Kazeem, the establishment of the Mobile Court had become utterly necessary at this point in time seeing that the only proven remedy to the spread of the virus was for the citizenry to abide by the sit at home order. And for those who would intentionally decide to violate the order, the Mobile Court would serve as a deterrent.

Kazeem noted that Lagos State Mobile Court Operations had already outlined different penalties for defaulting individuals.  He gave the penalties as follow:

  •  For individuals arrested violating the order, they will be liable to paying the sum of N10000(US$27.25) as fine and also engage in community service for 7days. Tricycle Operators who violate will pay the sum of N7000, while Motorcycle operators will pay N7000, Cars   N20000, and Trucks N50000. All the fines also attract a 7day compulsory community service.

 The Corps Marshal had mandated the Sector Commanders of the affected States to brace up with the present reality and cooperate maximally with the Government of Lagos State and the  FCT Administration for effective implementation of the Mobile Court Operations.

In the Federal Capital Territory, Kazeem revealed that the Mobile Court would be operating at 3 different locations namely; Mpape, Dantata Bridge by Airport Road and AYA Round About. Violators of the lockdown order would be tried and if found guilty, fined and their vehicles impounded until after the lockdown order was lifted.

He therefore warned that non essential workers who did not have anything doing outside should avoid leaving their homes as the Government was not ready to risk any further spread of the pandemic.
