50 Persons Commence Quarantine For Violating Interstate Travel Ban in Kaduna

The Kaduna State Standing Committee on COVID-19, said it has quarantined 50 persons at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) camp, for violating the ban on interstate travel and the quarantine orders of the state.

This was disclosed in a statement signed on Tuesday by the Special Adviser to the governor on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye.

He noted that the arrested travellers will be isolated for 14 days, to ensure that they are COVID-19 free.


“The quarantine centre received its first set of 27 guests on Sunday, while 23 others were brought in on Monday, following the deployment of senior Kaduna State Government officials to enforce the restriction of movement at various points of entry into the state.

“Federal and state quarantine orders currently in force prohibit all non-essential travel. Therefore, all persons are expected to stay wherever they are until the quarantine restrictions are lifted,’’ Adekeye said.

He added that with the exception of persons on essential duty, anyone attempting to enter the state will henceforth be turned back, and compelled to return to their points of departure.

Giving an update on the COVID-19 infections in Kaduna, Adekeye said 15 patients have so far been discharged and four fatalities recorded.
