I’ll lead Kano-Kaduna boundary patrol on Sallah day — El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El - Rufai of Kaduna State on Tuesday said he would patrol the Kano – Kaduna boundary during the eid- el-fitri so that nobody from Kano State would sneak into his state .

The governor said it was part of measures to check the spread of the deadly coronavirus into the state .

The eid- el- fitri which marks the end of Ramadan is slated for Saturday or Sunday .

Speaking during a media chat with selected radio stations in Kaduna on Tuesday , the governor said he would ensure that nobody entered the state through the Kano – Kaduna entry points as he would personally man the border .

“ I will ensure that I personally visit and patrol the Kaduna-Kano boundary on Sallah day and I will remain there from morning till night to see who will dare enter Kaduna State. I will not leave there until late at night ,” the governor said .

El - Rufai blamed the influx of people on some corrupt security agents , saying that they were sabotaging government ’ s efforts in curtailing the COVID - 19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, the state government has again shut all entry points into the state , according to the state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan .

Aruwan in a statement said it had sealed all entry points into the state to all travellers including those transporting food and other essential services between 6 pm and 6 am.
