Port Harcourt Lock Down: See Photos of Some Areas Showing Level of Compliance

Residents of Port Harcourt City and Obio Akpor Local Government Areas of Rivers State are doing their best to comply with the 24 hours curfew imposed on the LGAs by the State government.

The second phase of the lock down which commenced on Sunday night has seen residents of Port Harcourt and its environs sit at home for over 48 hours.

A look around some parts of the affected areas indicated that there is almost a 100 percent compliance level. Only persons on essential duties such as security personel, medical officers, waste management workers were seen scantily on areas like Ozuoba, Rumuoparali, and Rukpokwu.

However, compliance level was low at Igwuruta as people were seen buying and selling around Igwuruta market, close to the roundabout.

Recall that Chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Area, Samuel Nwanosike also imposed 24 hour curfew on the LGA shortly after Port Harcourt City and Obio Akpor had been ordered to stay indoors by the State government, all in the bid to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease.

The first Phase of the lock down saw residents sit at home from Thursday 7th May to Monday 11th may, after which it was relaxed for 6 days until it elapsed last Sunday.
