  “Why are people moving around when interstate movement has been restricted. We can trade within the state and grow our businesses to sustain our families. Why move in and out of the state to states with high record of high cases of coronavirus has been recorded.

  Ezeemo said that he went around to see for himself  the barrier placed by the state government to control vehicular movement into the state and aid effective control of human movement in and out of the state. Some of my friends were telling me about the boarder closure, some felt it was not necessary but I decided to pay a visit myself and I was happy with what I saw.
