The police have arrested a truckload of youths said to be from different parts of the north at the border between Lagos and Ogun states.
The arrest was made by the police following an intelligence report that the truck laden with tomatoes which were Lagos-bound, was also carrying a large number of young men.
The youths who were in their 20s and 30s were ordered to disembark from the truck, as the police said they would be taken to the task force office for further investigation.
There had been several cases of security personnel intercepting trucks carrying young men headed for the south mostly from the northern part of the country.
As a result of the development, many have raised concerns about the continued violation of the order restricting inter-state travel, like part of the measures to contain the spread of the COVID-19.
