The Zamfara taskforce committee on insecurity, has shutdown a filling station and bakery in Gusau and Tsafe LGAs of the state for allegedly working with bandits.
Abubakar Dauran, special adviser on security matters to Governor Bello Matawalle, and chairman of the committee, gave the order shortly after security agencies arrested four suspects for alleged supplying bread and petrol to bandits.
He said: “Both the filling station and bakery house will be closed down immediately,”
“Some of these suspects were found using jerrycans, 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.”
