Those affected according to Magistrate Ilela are mostly shops owner within Bauchi metropolis including vehicle owners for defying orders even when movement was restricted throughout the sanitation period.
“What the mobile court has done will surely serve as a deterrent to people in future especially violators of sanitation days in the state” said Ilela.
The magistrate had wondered why people keep defying sanitation orders and open their shops with vehicular movement during the period of sanitation.
According to him, sanitation has advantages in the prevention of cholera and other killer diseases so there is urgent need to embrace the exercise.
The agency he maintain has done a lot in keeping the entire state as a safe haven towards environmental cleanliness saying, the mobile court will not succumb to any intimidation to actualise its mandates in line with laid down government laws.
It therefore seeks public understanding and support to always adhere strictly during the period of sanitation day’s which is only once in a month.
