Zamfara government has issued order to hoteliers
In a press statement signed by the State’s commissioner for information, Hon. Ibrahim Magaji Dosara, he said this was part of the decision taken during an expanded security council meeting on Monday at the Government House in Gusau, the State capital.
“The measure is to checkmate terrorists and criminals as part of the government efforts to tackle insecurity in the State. Government was very much concerned over usage of hotels by terrorists and criminals to perpetrate their heinous activities in the State,” he said.
The government said any hotelier found violating the new order will have his hotel shut down and prosecuted according to the executive order recently signed by the State Governor, Hon. Bello Mohammed Matawalle.
The marathon expanded security council meeting, which lasted for eight hours, also considered enforcing restriction on motorcycle movement in the State capital and environs from 9 p.m. till dawn.
Dosara explained that the government had ordered the security agencies to shoot at sight any motorcycle rider who violates the order and refused to stop at security check-points within the designated areas.
He added that the measures were taken by the security council following reports on the use of motorcycles by bandits and other criminals to perpetrate their criminal activities within the State capital and its outskirts.
