The State Government of Nasarawa on Saturday, has said it would expel non-indigenous Alimajiris from the 13 local government areas of the state following the discovery of coronavirus in Abuja, its next-door neighbour.
The Federal Ministry of Health had earlier on Saturday confirmed 10 fresh cases of Coronavirus in the country.
Three of the cases were discovered in Abuja and seven in Lagos.
The state governor, Abdullahi Sule, who disclosed this at an emergency meeting with stakeholders at the Government House, said the move became necessary due to the ravaging spread of the pandemic.
He said: “The meeting is to discuss modalities on how to ensure that we carry out proactive measures to avert and curtail the spread of COVID-19 in the state if recorded.”
