Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has revealed that security operatives in the state are not cooperating to stop movement into the state.
El-Rufai while speaking at the COVID-19 briefing on Tuesday, noted that he would be present at the border of Kaduna-Kano on Sallah day to ensure that no one sneaks into the state.
He further stated that corrupt security agents are to blame for people sneaking into the state from Kano State which is experiencing a tough time with Coronavirus infection.
The Kaduna State Governor added that most of the confirmed cases in the state have had travel history.
“We have tried everything but the security agents have not been cooperating. We have heard of instances where commercial drivers and others pay them to come into Kaduna.”
“I will personally visit and patrol the Kaduna-Kano borders on Sallah day from morning till night to see who will dare enter Kaduna State.”
“I will not leave there until late at night.”
