Two lorries transporting passengers concealed among livestock into Kaduna State from Kano have been intercepted and turned back.

Two lorries transporting passengers concealed among livestock into Kaduna State from Kano have been intercepted and turned back.

The lorries were said to have slipped through the security checks at the Kaduna-Kano border, sneaking in humans concealed behind livestock, motorcycles and other goods.

However, security officials at the border discovered the hidden human cargo and prevented the vehicles from entering the State.

“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 local government,” Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said.

He added, “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 back in compliance with the Kaduna State Government’s ban on inter-state travel.

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

Interstate travel has been banned in Nigeria as a measure to curb the spread of Coronavirus in Nigeria.
