A trailer loaded with building materials smuggling people into Rivers state has been intercepted by members of COVID-19 Taskforce in Rumuigbo on Wednesday.
The collective effort of NYCN, Ijaw Youths and residents of the area aided the interception.
Reacting to the incident, the Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Council, Prince Solomon Eke called on residents of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area to remain vigilant.
Prince Solomon also appealed to the residents to share information should they notice any strange movement in their neighborhood.
It was further revealed that the violators claimed to have parted with N6,000 to gain entry after they were investigated by members of the taskforce.
The violators also had a fake lockdown pass to aide their entry into the local government area.
A close look at the document showed that the Governor’s signature was scanned.
