The chief prosecutor who spoke to journalists shortly after the exercise, Abubakar Muhammed, said operators of motorcycle had been in the habit of flouting environmental sanitation laws in the state as they continued to pick passengers during the exercise.
He stated that the state government would continue to strengthen the Environmental Sanitation Mobile Courts in the state and relevant agencies to ensure that residents comply fully with the exercise for cleanliness.
Muhammed warned motorists, business organisations, commercial vehicle operators in Nasarawa, and those passing the state against violating sanitation laws in the state adding that henceforth violators would be sent to prison without options of fine to serve as a deterrent to others.
