The Zamfara State Taskforce Committee on Compliance to Governor Bello Matawalle’s Executive Order on insecurity has ordered the closure of a filling station and bakery in Gusau and Tsafe local government areas of the State.
Abubakar Dauran, the Chairman of the Committee, gave the order on Wednesday after security forces arrested four suspects for allegedly supplying petrol and bread to bandits.
He said the filling station, located in Tsafe town, Tsafe Local Government Area, would be closed for purported selling petroleum products to bandits’ collaborators, while a bakery in Gusau would be closed for allegedly supplying bread to bandits.
He said, “Both the filling station and bakery house will be closed down immediately.”
He said, “Some of these suspects were found using Jericans, gallons and generator tanks to buy petroleum from the filling stations and supplying the product to bandits in their hideouts.
“They were arrested carrying petroleum heading to Yanware village of Tsafe LGA, while the suspected bread suppliers were caught illegally using motorcycles to supply bread to some unknown persons, suspected to be bandits.”
