Bauchi state has put three areas that border Kano state under a 10-day total lockdown after the state saw a rise in Coronavirus cases.
The state governor, Bala Mohammed, said the lockdown was necessary to curb rapid community transmission.
He said the measure will allow for effective contact tracing and testing.
Governor Mohammed said movement within and out of the local government areas is prohibited so as to allow health officials to work without interference.
