Bakery, filling station shut in Zamfara

One filling station and a bakery have been shut in Zamfara State over alleged complicity in banditry.

The action was taken by the state government through its security task force which directed the immediate closure of the filling station in Tsafe and the bakery in Gusau local government areas of the state.

The action came after arresting three suspected fuel and bread suppliers to bandits in the bush.

The Chairman of the task force committee and the special adviser to the Zamfara State Governor on Security Affairs, Abubakar Dauran in a statement noted that the task force also recovered two motorcycles, one filled with fuel while the other was carrying a loaf of bread, two Jerry cans, and a functional generator with fuel from bandits’ collaborators in Tsafe and Gusau LGAs of the state.

In explaining that the fuel suppliers have been using a functional generator to obtain the fuel from the filling station to fill Jerry cans which they believed they would take to bandits in the bush, he insisted that the suspects are to be handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution.
