COVID 19: Kaduna shuts entry points to all travel from 6pm to 6am
No interstate or intra-state travel is allowed at night-time even for essential services with effect from Friday, May 1, 2020.
A statement by Samuel Aruwan, Commissioner, Internal Security and Home Affairs said, “Following a security briefing that criminal elements are using night-time hours to infiltrate people into Kaduna State, the state government is compelled to take further measures to deter inter-state travel.
“Recent COVID-19 cases in the state are related to inter-state travel which is implicated in the rapid spread of the virus across state lines.
“Security agencies will respect the exemptions granted for the movement of food and other essentials in daytime hours,” the statement said
According to the statement, all entry points will be sealed to all traffic from 6pm until 6am daily. All vehicles that come after 6pm carrying food, petroleum products or other essentials must park at the entry point overnight. Vehicles on essential duty will then be inspected after 6am by our health and security team, and will only be granted passage if the goods they are conveying are really essential.
“All passenger and private vehicles shall be turned back to their original destination.
“The government appeals to everyone to scrupulously comply with the Quarantine Orders to save lives and protect our people from the suffering infection with Covid-19 could unleash,” the statement further said.
