FCT Ministerial Task Team Jabi Lake Mall OnoBello

The shut down of the popular Jabi Lake Mall where Naira Marley had the drive-in concert that drew a lot of backlash yesterday Saturday, June 13 by authorities of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has prompted mixed reactions from Nigerians.

According to the FCTA authorities, the mall was shut down indefinitely for violating the Presidential Task Force’s ban on public gatherings as part of measures to curb COVID-19 pandemic in Abuja.

Addressing newsmen shortly after the closure of the mall, Leader of the Task Team, Mr Ikharo Attah, said the management of the Mall had consistently violated the FCTA’s guidelines on COVID-19.

Attah lamented that the management of the mall encouraged and granted permit for a concert by Naira Marley in spite of several warnings by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19. According to him, the mall is conducting business activities exceeding the normal hours approved by the authorities.

Attah explained that the seal order was necessitated by the unlawful and embarrassing event at the mall on June 12, 2020.
