The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on (COVID-19) has said it will apprehend, quarantine and ensure inbound passengers disobeying COVID-19 protocols bear the cost of testing for the coronavirus.
Dr Mukhtar Mohammed, PTF National Incident Manager, said this on Monday in Abuja at the PTF COVID-19 national briefing.
Mohammed said it will apply the full force of the law which includes fines and imprisonment.
This, he said, is to ensure that people travel safely and when they return to the country, they do not constitute nuisance to their loved ones and the community.
“PTF is aware of the report of syndicates at some international airports outside Nigeria which specialise in providing fake results to innocent Nigerian People who are travelling back home.
“While investigating the matter, I will like to reiterate that it is the responsibility of passengers returning to Nigeria to ensure that they are tested before they start returning.
“You cannot be given a negative result when your samples have not been taken, please understand this and comply,” NAN quoted him as saying.
