Edo State Intercept Trailer Loaded With Northerners From Kano Send Them To Isolation Centre
A Trailer load of Northerners who hide and pretend to transport goods from KANO STATE were intercepted by security operatives today in Edo State.
The Trailer was checked and 60 persons among them tested POSITIVE for Corona-Virus.
A call was put to the Governor of Edo State, and he ordered that they should all be taken to IRRUA SPECIALIST TEACHING HOSPITAL (ISTH).
Recall that Kano has turned out to be a front line state from the deadly COVID-19 .
Edo residents have taken to their various social media handles prasing the governemnt for a swift response.
See how a resident responded to the discovery by the state security.
We thank Governor Obaseki for the swinging into action immediately as regard the Northerners who entered Edo state few hours ago.
After using 80 testing kits on them, both the Positive and the Negative will be returned to their State.
The Governor has made security made up of Police, Civil defense and Army that will escort them to Kogi and return back to Edo state.
The Governor of Kogi state has already been notified of the situation and they too are with a Standby Security in Kogi waiting for them to be escorted until they get to Kano state and isolated there immediately.
Funds for their feeding has also be made available by the State Government.
Kudos to the Governor once more
