The Nigeria Safety and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has arrested 36 northern youths sneaking out of Osun State for violating the lockdown directive.
They have been intercepted on the boundary of Ilesha round 9pm on Monday once they have been sneaking out of Ilesha and heading for Sokoto.
NSCDC Commandant in Osun State Mr. Adeyinka Oguntunwase, parading the youth, stated his officers arrested them at Ilesha boundary.
He stated: “My males on responsibility in Ilesha arrested the northern youth round 9:30pm. After we interrogated them, they informed us that they have been going to Sokoto. They stated they have been going via Ede and Ogbomosho earlier than they’d be a part of the expressway resulting in Sokoto.
“We’re sending them again to the top of their extraction in Ilesha. After we contacted their head about their arrest, he was not comfortable about what the youth had accomplished. He stated he had warned them towards travelling. They’ll face the total wrath of the regulation.”
