vehicles  from the Kaduna-Kano border and attempting to convey passengers into Kaduna have turned . This follows the interception of lorries by security operatives at the Kaduna-Kano border on Monday.  

In the most recent development, the lorries slipped through the security checks at the border, sneaking in their human cargo concealed behind livestock including rams,goats, motorcycles and other goods.

on Thursday, Kaduna Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said: “We got information that these lorries had come in from the Kaduna-Kano border and had progressed up to Gwargwaji in Zaria LGA. We then proceeded to nab them further along within the same government.

“The passengers were cleverly concealed behind random goods, motorcycles and animals. Thankfully, once again we have got the better of them, and we have turned them , in compliance with the Kaduna Government’s ban on inter- travel.

“Operatives are actively enforcing the directives at all points, and passengers have similarly intercepted from other routes and escorted out to the borders.”

The ban on interstate travel is one of the measures taken by the Kaduna State Government to curb the spread of COVID 19, and has vigorously enforced by security agencies at the State’s borders.
