Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle has directed telecommunication services be restored in the state capital, Gusau, from today (Friday).
The restoration according to a statement issued on Friday by the Governor’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Zailani Bappa, was intended to ease the hardship faced by the people.
What the state govt is saying
“Government finds it necessary to ease the tight measures after the recorded successes. The operations have no doubt destabilsed the criminals terrorising the state.
“To this end, the governor promised that his administration will continue to monitor closely the unfolding developments and will announce further decisions at the appropriate time,” the statement added.
In case you missed it
Zamfara State suspended all telecommunications services. The measure was aimed at stemming kidnappings and killings carried out by criminal armed groups who allegedly use their mobile phones to prepare coordinated attacks and demand ransom payments.
