A lorry with registration number MGR 148 XA, Jigawa conveying about thirty three people from Plateau State who stole into Anambra State have been arrested.
The lorry also loaded with goats, motorcycles and other things, was tracked and intercepted in front of government house, Awka and escorted back to Anambra/Enugu boundary.
After much quizz, they said that they came from Jos, on their way to Onitsha for economic purposes.
Speaking to the press, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Obiano, Mr James Eze said that eventhough the occupants of thr lorry are Nigerians, their movement contravenes the interstate movement directive of President Mohammadu Buhari in keeping with the COVID-19 Protocol.
