Kano Mobile Court has arrested 45 vehicles that disregarded the lockdown order and ban on inter-states movement at Kwanar Dangora, Kano-Kaduna boundary, Thursday.

The Court under the chairmanship of Salisu Idris Sallama fined all the lawbreakers accordingly.

A statement issued on Thursday by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Abba Anwar and obtained by Solacebase said over 45 vehicles that tried to sneak into the state were arrested, with over 30 of them from Kaduna state, 10 from Jigawa and others from other places.

The statement said they were arrested because they contravene the ban on inter-state movement order and decided to sneak to Kano ahead of Sallah festivity.

‘’While commending the security agencies for the good work, governor Ganduje called on the security agencies to keep vigil and make sure that, “Our boundaries with other states are closely monitored and controlled,’’ said the statement.

‘’Adding that security agencies should be extra vigilant to make sure that kidnappers, bandits, armed robbers, cattle rustlers, vanguards of religious extremism and other criminal elements do not cross the border from Kaduna to Kano.”

The statement said Ganduje further explained, “People should understand that, when the state puts a ban on inter-states movement, it is necessary for them to observe that.”
