FCTA seals Jabi Mall for hosting June 12 concert amid COVID-19 fears

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 task team secured a judgement to this effect from a mobile court headed by Magistrate Idayat Akonni, who sat in the mall premises in Jabi.

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.

The concert not only violated the rules of social distancing and use of face masks in public, it also breached the 10 pm to 4 am curfew declared by the Federal Government.

Attah added that the mall management had also continued to exceed hours of business operations permitted by the authorities.

In line with the judgement from the magistrate, the mall will be sealed for a period of two weeks over the three-count charge, which includes default of the COVID-19 protocols.

Attah stressed that the task team could not overlook the unlawful and embarrassing event at the mall on June 12, as a stern warning had to be sent to defaulters.

Jabi Lake Mall is a one-stop retail and leisure destination, with a waterside location, Shoprite, Silverbird Cinema, and several food and beverage outlets.

The Federal Government has announced the reintroduction of Covid-19 restrictions across all 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

This follows the disturbing resurgence of the coronavirus pandemic and is also seen as part of preemptive measures to be taken to mitigate the impact of the new variants of the disease, should they be imported into the country.

The disclosure was made by the Head of Technical Secretariat of the Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) on Covid-19, Dr Muktar Mohammed while briefing the press on Monday in Abuja.

Mohammed said that this new directive is expected to take effect by midnight of Tuesday, May 11, 2021.

The reintroduction of the Covid-19 restrictions means that mass gatherings in public spaces have been restricted to 50 people at any given time, while access to government institutions would also be denied to anyone not wearing a face mask.

Mohammed said that government meetings and travels had been limited to virtual platforms, adding that the government had directed that bars and nightclubs should remain closed and the nationwide curfew would be in force until further notice.

While stating that only essential international travels would be encouraged and all existing protocols must be strictly adhered to, the PSC member, however, stated that there was no limitation to intra-state travel.

On his part, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) who also doubles as the Chairman of PSC, Boss Mustapha, revealed that the committee had considered several pre-emptive measures to be taken to mitigate the likely impact of the variants of Covid-19, should they get imported into Nigeria.

Mustapha explained that the step became important in view of the fragile state of the nation’s health systems, the disruption to the delivery of vaccines, and the lack of compliance with the extant public health and social measures contained in the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Health Protection Regulations 2021.
