A wedding taking place in Abuja has been shut down by the federal capital territory (FCT) enforcement team.
The wedding, holding at Wise Zone 6, was shut down for violating the restriction on public gatherings by Mohammed Bello, FCT minister.
The ban is a part of measures put in place to curb the spread of coronavirus in the FCT.
The FCT administration made this known via its Twitter handle, adding that government will not be easy on offenders who flout orders.
“The FCT Enforcement Team which includes security & law enforcement agents has shut down a wedding ceremony happening at Wuse Zone 6,” the tweet read.
“NOTE: The FCTA will not tolerate any kind of gathering as we continue to urge residents to abide strictly by the laid down guidelines.”
The FCT has 14 out of the 81 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Nigeria.
