The Zamfara State Government has ordered immediate restriction of movement along the state’s borders with Katsina and Sokoto from 7:00 pm to 6:00 am.

The Commissioner for Information and Culture, Manir Haidara, disclosed this to journalists in Gusau on Tuesday.

Haidara noted that the directive was part of the decision of the State Security Council Meeting.

“As from today, the state government has ordered restriction of movement along Yankara border of Zamfara with Katsina state and Bimasa Zamfara border with Sokoto state from 7:00 pm to 6:00 am daily.

“This is to tackle the incessant kidnapping of travellers along the Sokoto-Gusau-Funtua highway.

“This is part of the state government’s measures to reduce and address kidnapping activities by bandits, especially along highways in the state,” he said.

According to the commissioner, all motorists and travellers are directed to abide by the government’s order.

“Security agencies are directed to monitor the two borders and ensure full compliance,” he added.
