Inter-state travel: Security agents arrest 189 violators in Abuja

The joint security task force at the Zuba-Dei-Dei in Abuja on Friday intercepted two articulated vehicles conveying 189 men for violating interstate travel ban.

The violators, who claimed to be coming from Katsina state through Kaduna and Niger states, said they are heading to Edo for farming business.

The Area Commander of the Directorate of Road Traffic Services, Yakubu Mohammed, said the vehicles were intercepted few minutes before 7 a.m. at Zuba.

He said that his team had earlier detoured another four mini-buses carrying passengers heading towards the south to Kaduna-Kano axis of the highway.

The combined security team is made up of the Army, the Police, National Security and Civil Defence Corps and Directorate of Road Traffic Services (VIO).

The vehicles that conveyed them to Zuba were also carrying fairly used motorcycles, mostly used for commercial transportation in most parts of the country.

One of the violators, Bilyaminu Yahaya, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that he was travelling to look for his livelihood.
