Kaduna state government has reportedly removed all road blocks at the boundaries leading to the state.
In a tweet by governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El- Rufai, the governor said: “KDSG has directed the immediate removal of roadblocks at the various boundaries of the state.
“Barricades placed at the entry points are to be removed forthwith, while KDSG officials will no longer be posted for boundary patrols.”
Interstate barricades and lockdowns were put in place by the federal government to prevent inter-state travels which were aimed at preventing or reducing the spread of the deadly coronavirus in the country.
The lockdown and stoppage of interstate travels were put in place since March when the coronavirus began to gained entrance into many states of the country. It was an initiative of the federal government to forestall the rapid spread of the virus.
But despite the barricade and roadblocks in many states, travelers were still crossing into other states due to the porosity of the borders and the corruption among the security officials.
Reports were detailing how police would collect bribes from the drivers and allow them to have unfettered entrance into other states.
