The Cross River Covid-19 taskforce team stationed at Gakem border between Bekwarra LGA and Benue state has denied another two trucks conveying Almajiris entrance into the state on Sunday night.
The taskforce led by the Commissioner for Youths, Hon. Signor Omang intercepted the two trucks last night along the Gakem axis while trying to smuggle themselves into Cross River.
This is the third time within one week that the taskforce team at this spot is returning back the Almajiris back to their respective destinations.
Noticeably is the fact that these set of persons are always been conveyed on Dangote trucks.
The question begging for answer is why are they bent on bringing these Almajiris to Cross River State by all means?
The taskforce team led by Hon. Signor Omang Idiege has been very upright and steadfast at the border post.
With the continuous attempt to smuggle these Almajiris into the state, there is need for beef up of security around our borders to forestall breach of the border closure order.
