The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) Ministerial Task Team on COVID-19 has sealed the premises of the Jabi Lake Mall, over violation of the Presidential ban on social gatherings, to curb the spread of the Coronavirus.
Bashir Ahmad, the Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, announced this via his Twitter handle on Sunday.
The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has closed down Jabi Lake Mall indefinitely for violating the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 directive, the ban on public gatherings, the FCT Task Force on COVID-19 has said in a statement.
According to the leader of the Task Team, Mr Ikharo Attah, the closure of the premises had become necessary due to repeated violations of the FCTA guidelines and safety measures on COVID-19.
The most recent of this flagrant disregard for the safety guidelines was seen when the management of the mall granted permit to and hosted a concert by Naira Marley on June 12, 2020, despite several warnings by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19.
