Rivers - Members of the public who do not comply with the restriction of movement for the Rivers State Sanitation Exercise will be prosecuted.
Jerry Needam, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to Felix Obuah, The Administrator of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency, said the event will hold on Saturday.
As usual human and vehicular movements will be restricted from 7am to 10am during the sanitation hours.
