The Anambra State Government has shut down the Onitsha Head Bridge over the Coronavirus [Covid-19] pandemic in the country.
This was disclosed in a Public Service Announcement issued by the Secretary to the State Government, Professor Solo Chukwulobelu.
Professor Chukwulobelu notified Anambra residents and motorists in the state, and those wishing to pass through Anambra state that the Government of Delta state has announced closure of all its land borders with effect from Sunday, 29th of March, 2020.
He, therefore, advised motorists not to travel through the Niger Bridge Head, Onitsha, to avoid putting pressure on the bridge. Motorists will not be able to drive into Delta state as a result of the border closure order in place.
The statement reads in part:
“The government of Anambra state is also announcing the closure of Onitsha Head bridge with immediate effect to discourage vehicles queuing up on the bridge.
“The security agencies are hereby directed to enforce this.
“Motorists should also note that the government of Enugu state has announced the closure of its land borders with effect from Tuesday, March 31, 2020.
“Only vehicles transporting food items and medicines will be allowed passage.
“The government of Anambra state hereby reiterates its earlier directive for people to stay at home and observe strictly the coronavirus advisory and directives earlier issued.”
