The Taraba State Government has announced the resumption of religious activities in the state.
Governor Darius Ishaku’s deputy, Haruna Manu, made the announcement on Monday in a statewide broadcast in Jalingo, the state capital.
Mr Manu, however, said that observance of social distancing and other safety protocols must be strictly adhered to.
He also announced slight ease on the restriction of movement and other activities in the state.
According to him, the government has set aside Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays to enable the residents to carry out their activities from 8 am to 6 pm.
The deputy governor added that lockdown would still be observed on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, adding that violators would face strict penalties.
Mr Manu urged religious leaders and other citizens to comply with the rules.
Recall that the government had hitherto declared partial lockdown, allowing free movement on Wednesdays and Saturdays only.
