*DaqvamDaq yIghoS* (commanding multiple people)

This is an instance where you're using a locative-marked noun on a verb 
whose object is inherently locative, which TKD calls "somewhat 
redundant, but not out-and-out wrong," and which Okrand later described 
as "overkill." You could say it, but a better way to say it would be 
*Daqvam yIghoS.*

Meanwhile, *DaqvamDaq peghoS* would mean that while you are in this 
place, you should go somewhere.
