JTF Bans Hawking, Begging Around Checkpoints In Yobe

The Joint Task Force on Internal Security (JTF)  in Yobe, has banned hawking  and begging around security checkpoints in the state, a statement said in Damaturu on Tuesday.

The statement, issued by the JTF spokesman, Lt. Eli Lazarus, advised hawkers to use “designated markets and other approved places for trading activities.’’

”Henceforth, anybody found hawking around security checkpoints will be arrested and prosecuted,” the statement stated.

It further warned beggars against squatting around checkpoints to beg for alms from motorists lined up for stop and search operations.

The News Agency of Nigeria  reports that hawkers and beggars in Damaturu and other major towns in the state often besiege security checkpoints to do business and beg respectively.

The Yobe Government on Monday reviewed the curfew period in the state from  8.00p.m. to  7.00a.m, to 6.00p.m. to 6.00a.m. after the Federal Government  declared emergency rule in the state with two others.
