The Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, on Wednesday, shut down a filling station and bakery in Gusau and Tsafe local government areas, accusing them of helping bandits.
Recall that NewsBreak reported how residents cried for help as bandits mounted road blocks, imposed taxes and burned farmlands in Gusau.
Chairmen of the committee, Abubakar Dauran, gave the order shortly after security forces arrested four suspects for allegedly supplying bread and petrol to bandits.
The filling station, located in Tsafe town, would be closed for selling petroleum products to bandits’ collaborators and a bakery in Gusau.
He said: “Both the filling station and bakery house will be closed down immediately.
“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.”
