The Zamfara State Taskforce Committee on Compliance to Governor Bello Matawalle’s Executive Order on insecurity on Wednesday ordered the closure of a filling station and bakery in Gusau and Tsafe local government areas of the state.

Chairmen of Committee, Abubakar Dauran, gave the order shortly after security forces arrested four suspects for alleged supplying bread and petrol to bandits.

Dauran, also the Special Adviser to Matawalle on Security Matters, said the filling station, located in Tsafe town, Tsafe local government area, would be closed for alleged selling petroleum products to bandits’ collaborators while a bakery in Gusau would be shut down for allegedly supplying bread to bandits.

He said the government would enforce the executive order to the letter, warning that violators, when caught, would face the full wrath of the law.

The committee chairman appealed to residents of the state to continue to support government and security agencies with credible information on bandits and their collaborators for appropriate action.
