The Zamfara State Government has imposed a curfew along the state’s borders with Katsina and Sokoto from 7 pm to 6 am due to the resurgence of terrorists’ attacks on travelers.

This is contained in a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Culture, Mannir Haidara.

Haidara noted that the order was part of the decision of the State Security Council meeting.


“As of 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 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. daily,” he said.

According to him, the development was to tackle the incessant kidnapping of travelers along the Sokoto-Gusau-Funtua highway.

He added that all motorists and travelers are directed to abide by the government’s order as security agencies are directed to monitor the two borders and ensure full compliance.
