The task force headed by the state Deputy Governor, Kayode Alabi gave the directive in his office on Wednesday during a parade of the driver and the 30 passengers arrested with the bus.
According to the Chief Press Secretary to the deputy governor,Modupe Joel said, Alabi frowned at the bus driver for risking lives and directed occupants of the bus should be escorted and handed over to security agents at the Kwara-Niger border in Jebba. He noted that the government would not allow anyone to further import coronavirus into the state.
Parading passengers before the Deputy Governor, the Kwara state police commissioner, Kayode Egbetokun explained that the driver claimed to have bribed his way through the borders into the state.
Egbetokun said that the bus and its passengers left Kano yesterday for Ibadan before the men of Nigeria police force with other security agents at the border arrested it for violating the interstate travel ban.
The bus was later led back to Niger State border by men of the Nigeria police force at 3 p.m.
