The Executive Governor of Kaduna State Nasir El- Rufai has revealed that he will personally patrol Kaduna- Kano borders on Sallah day to ensure that no one sneaks into the state.
El Rufai who lamented over the attitude of security agencies towards upholding ,movement restriction while speaking at the COVID-19 briefing on Tuesday said that security agents are to blame for the influx of travellers from the Kano State, the second hotbed for COVID-19 infections in the country.
He lamented that most of those who tested positive for coronavirus in that state have had travel history.
He, therefore, blamed the influx of people sneaking into the state to the activities of corrupt security agents on the highway.
“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.”
