Day 1 of Port Harcourt Lock Down: See Photos of Streets, Plazas, Super Markets and Major Roads

NTA Ozuoba Road


As the total lockdown on Port Harcourt City and Obio Akpor Local Governmnent Areas begin today, Thursday 7th May 2020 as directed by the State Government, residents of Mgbuoba, Ozuoba and Rumuigbo areas seem to be complying with the order.

As I drove along the ever busy Mgbuoba-Choba road, all I saw were shops under lock, few private and branded vehicles conveying essential workers and security patrol vans.

Security agents were also cited at major junctions including Location-Ada George Junction, NTA Apara Link, Rumuokoro Roundabout, Rumuagholu and Ibiri-Ikwerre Junction.

The State Government had issued a statement earlier in the week announcing a 24 hour curfew on the two Local Government Areas in a bid to curb the spread of covid 19.

The lock down barred all vehicular movements except essential workers who must properly identify themselves. Shops and religious places are to remain closed during the lockdown.

Chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Area, Samuel Nwanosike confirmed to the media today that the lock down has now been extended to Ikwerre Local Government, because the LGA is a boundary between Rivers and other States.
