Governor Bello Mattawale of Zamfara has banned the riding of motorcycles from 8 pm to 6 am in all areas and outskirts of Gusau town.

Speaking during a broadcast on Monday night, Matawalle also directed the security personnel to shoot at sight violators of the ban in the areas.

The governor listed the areas that will experience the ban to include Mareri, Damba, Tsunami, Tsauni, Barakallahu, Samaru, Gada Biyu, and Janyau East.

Matawalle ordered security forces to shoot anyone riding a motorcycle between 8 pm and 6 am on the outskirt of Gusau, who refuses to stop when ordered to do so.

He said the measure was taken following reports on the use of motorcycles by bandits to perpetrate their criminal activities within the state capital and its outskirts.

Matawalle, however, stressed that the security of lives and property of the citizenry remains his priority.

He said, “Considering the recent invasion of bandits in some areas on the outskirts of Gusau, the state capital, riding of motorcycles is hereby banned from 8 pm to 6 am in all areas and outskirts of Gusau town.

“These areas include Mareri, Damba, Tsunami, Tsauni, Barakallahu, Samaru, Gada Biyu, and Janyau East”.

“Security forces are hereby ordered to shoot anyone riding a motorcycle between 8 pm and 6 am on the outskirt of Gusau, who refuses to stop when ordered to do so by them.

“Meanwhile, members of the public have been implored to be vigilant in their localities and report to security agencies any suspicious person or strange movement in their respective communities.”

“The state government will not take it lightly with anyone found disturbing the peace and security of the people”.
