The Sokoto State government has shut down telecommunication services in 14 local government areas of the state.

This was made known by the state governor, Aminu Tambuwal on Monday, September 20, during an interview with Voice of America (VOA) Hausa Service.

According to him, the move is part of the effort to check banditry in the state.

He revealed that the affected council areas are the most vulnerable to bandit attacks in the state, adding that the telecom services in the local government areas were shut down after the state secured approval from the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isah Pantami.

The network ban is effective in Dange Shuni, Tambuwal, Sabon Birni, Raba, Tureta, Goronyo, Tangaza and Isa local government areas amongst others.

Isa local government area shares boundaries with Shinkafi LGA in Zamfara State, while Goronyo and Sabon Birni from west and north respectively have borders with the Republic of Niger in the east.
