No fewer than 5000 Indigenes of Adamawa state, have lost their jobs in Lagos and Ogun states, due to the outbreak of coronavirus in Nigeria.
The police men were said to took the advantage of the international and inter states bounderies closure to commit the unconstitutional act.
Sadly however, the affected people have had to bribe security operatives on the highway to return home.
They narrated their ordeals on Saturday, when the State Covid-19 Containment team, visited several quarantine centers across the state.
One of them, who pleaded anonymity, at Bali quarantine facility, told SaharaReporters that 5000 Adamawa Indigenes lost their jobs at a Chinese owned ceramics factory in Ogun state.
He said, “I can confirm that about 5000 of us from Adamawa state, are part of a 20,000 staffs of a Chinese ceramics factory, located in Ogun state.
“I can also confirm to you that of our numbers, only a few of us are still on their way back here.
“That is why we want to plead on their behalf, that our government should do something to fast track their arrival because policemen are extorting us on the highways.
“For instance, some of us have not been back home here for the past five years, as such we don’t have a valid national identity card; and because of it, police will force you to part with at least N1000”, said.
Chairman of the state Covid-19 Containment Committee, who is also the Secretary to the State Government, Bashir Ahmad, told the returnees that the state government was mindful of their predicament.
He urged them to endure the 14-day mandatory quarantine, assuring them that they would soon be integrated into normal society.
