#COVID-19: Dangote trucks, tankers stranded as Ogun, Lagos impose ban on interstate travelling

As the Ogun State government closed its borders with neighboring states like Lagos, Oyo and Osun, many trucks were reported to have gotten stuck in different borders across the state.

President Muhammadu Buhari had in a live broadcast on Sunday ordered the lock down of Lagos, Ogun and Abuja to stop the spread of Coronavirus disease.

The enforcement of the order started at 11 pm on Monday.

WotzupNG gathered that there were long queues of trucks and other vehicles on the road on Tuesday morning as security agents barricaded the borders to prevent interstate travelling.
