Niger State currently has recorded 302 cases of COVID-19, with 12 deaths from 17 of the 25 local governments in the state.
The state governor Abubakar Bello in November announced that he tested positive for COVID-19 and recovered about two weeks later.
The head of service said the workers are to stay at home till further notice. The directive, however, excludes workers on essential services.
