Security Operatives Intercepts Two Lorries Transporting Passengers Hidden Among Animals at Kaduna Border

Following tip-off, Security officials at the Kaduna-Kano border intercepted two lorries attempting to smuggle in  passengers concealed among livestock from Kano to Kaduna State.

Security sources say that the lorries which came all the way from Kano State, were said to have slipped through the security checks at the border, sneaking in their human cargo among livestock, motorcycles and other goods.

Confirming the interception, Kaduna State Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan in a statement 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 local 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 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,” Aruwan stated.

The  ban on interstate travel is one of the measures taken by the Kaduna state government to curb the spread of COVID 19,  ” has been vigorously enforced by security agencies at the state’s borders,” said a local journalist who monitored situation.
