Zamfara State Governor, Matawalle Bello, has explained why his government decided to shut down all telecommunications networks.

According to him, the move was in a bid to check banditry in the state.

Speaking to DW Hausa Service on Monday, September 6, Matawalle said the security forces in collaboration with local vigilantes were taking the fight into the bandits’ enclaves as directed by the army chief, Yahaya Farouk.

He also revealed that shutting down of telecoms networks and closing of local markets have started making an impact.

He said;

“The bandits are releasing their captives, they are abandoning their motorcycles after running out of fuel. Many of the bandits have been killed by the security forces and the security personnel will sustain the offensive against them until we wipe them out from Zamfara.”
