Anambra community intercepts 1,500 vehicles


Youths of Ebenebe community in Awka North Local Government Area of Anambra State have intercepted more than 1,500 vehicles for violating the COVID-19 regulations on movement.

The state government, last weekend, relaxed some aspects of its restriction on human and vehicular movements, leaving the boundary closed.

The vehicles abandoned the Enugu-Onitsha (in Anambra State) expressway and diverted to the community.

The closure of the boundaries between the two neighbouring states was among measures to stop the spread of the deadly Coronavirus disease ravaging the world.

Nnatuanya said the action was meant to ensure that no vehicle was allowed to cross into Anambra.
