Abia Gov Ikpeazu Locks Down Borders Over Fear Of Influx Of Almajiri's...

Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu on Tuesday, May 5; mandated the total lockdown of the state’s borders based on the intel that a group of almajiris were planning to move into the state within 24 hours.

The governor directed “all security agencies in the state; especially those posted to inter-state boundary communities, members of the State and LGAs enforcement task force teams; as well as the inter-ministerial committee on COVID-19, to ensure that within this period of the subsisting border closure necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic; no individual or group is allowed to enter the state, aside from those duly exempted, from any other part of the country.”

This was contained in a statement issued by Ikpeazu via the Commissioner for Information, John Okiyi Kalu.

“The Governor also directs men and officers of the State Homeland Security Ministry to deploy immediately to relevant inter-state boundary communities; to ensure there is no unauthorized entry.

“We wish to reemphasize that traditional rulers and TC Chairmen of inter-state boundary communities will be held responsible and sanctioned for any such unauthorized entry into the state.

“All necessary lawful measures must be taken to stop the entry of not only the almajiris; but also other unlawful migrants into the state till the FG-backed inter-state border closure regulation put in place to control the spread of COVID-19 from one state to another is lifted,” the statement reads.
