Nasarawa State Government has announced a total lock-down of Nasarawa Local Government Area of the state for 3 days with effect from Wednesday May 6.

The decision followed the death of State House of Assembly Member, Alhaji Suleiman Adamu representing Nasarawa Central  Constituency, due to COVID-19 infection.

State Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr Dogo Shamah announced this while briefing newsmen at the end of a security meeting in Lafia.

Mr Shamah said locking down the local government was to prevent the spread of the virus  and to ensure seamless contact tracing, as so far, over 75 people have been identified to have contacts with the  deceased.

Heads of security agencies, traditional rulers, the executive council and members of the  state Task Force Committee on COVID-19 attended the meeting.
