A trailer coming from Lagos State with no fewer than 50 people has been turned back for flouting the Niger State Government ’ s lockdown order .
The Secretary to the State Government , Ibrahim Matane , while going round the state to access the level of compliance , asked the driver to return to where he was coming from with immediate effect .
The truck was stopped by security personnel in the Gidan Kwano area when they saw people on top of the truck and their explanations were not reasonable .
They alerted Matane , who is also the chairman of Niger State Task Force on COVID – 19 , who turned back the trailer.
The driver had explained that they were coming from Lagos and going to Kano , promising not to stop in the state .
But Matane ordered the security personnel to escort the trailer back to where it came from .
He said , “ There is no waiver for any truck that is not carrying food items, fuel or other essential products to enter into the state. ”
An eyewitness told our correspondent that the truck was covered with tarpaulin , adding that some of the boys were on top of the truck, while others were covered by the tarpaulin .
