Insecurity: Zamfara bans motorcycle riders from operating at night

The Zamfara State Government has banned night movement of motorcycles from 6pm to 6am due to the insecurity ravaging the entire state.

This was contained in a press statement issued by the Senior Special Adviser on Media (Broadcast), Jaafaru Mustapha Kaura, and made available to newsmen in Gusau, the state capital.

According to the statement, Governor Dauda Lawal said that the measure was taken at the security meeting held at the Government House in Gusau.

The statement further indicated that the governor expressed dismay over the continuous banditry activities in the state, stating that his administration is implementing formidable strategies to address the insecurity issue in the state.

He, however, commended the military and security agencies for their efforts in fighting the bandits, urging them to redouble their efforts.

Recall that the immediate past governor of the state, now a minister, Bello Mohammed, had during his tenure banned motorcycle riders from operating at night, yet it didn’t produce any beneficial results.

The former governor also shut down telecommunication networks across the state to arrest the situation, but nothing worked out as expected.
