Insecurity: Zamfara govt declares curfew over incessant terrorists attack

The Zamfara State Government has imposed a 7:00 pm to 6:00 am curfew along the state’s borders with Katsina and Sokoto.

This decision was made in response to the recent increase in terrorist attacks on unsuspecting travellers in the state.

The Commissioner for Information and Culture, Mannir Haidara, made this announcement in a statement following the State Security Council meeting.

“As of today, the State Government has ordered restriction of movement along the Yankara border of Zamfara with Katsina state and Bimasa Zamfara border with Sokoto State from 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. daily,” the announcement said.

The commissioner emphasized that this measure was implemented to address the ongoing issue of frequent kidnappings of travellers on the Sokoto-Gusau-Funtua highway.

In order to ensure the effectiveness of this directive, all motorists and travellers are required to adhere to the government’s order.

The government also noted that security agencies have been instructed to closely monitor the two borders and ensure strict compliance with the directive.
