President Muhammadu Buhari has declared Zamfara State a no-fly-zone and banned all mining activities to curb rising insecurity in the state.
National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj.-Gen Babagana Monguno (rtd.) disclosed this after a security council meeting presided over by President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Monguno also stated that all non-state actors have been placed under strict surveillance, saying the Federal Government would not hesitate to use kinetic means to restore normalcy in the country.
He said the country’s defence and intelligence apparatuses have been put on alert and charged not to allow the country to slide into anarchy.
Monguno also said the President, directed the new service chiefs to reclaim all areas under the control of bandits, kidnappers and terrorists, adding: “We won’t be blackmailed as the government has the responsibility to assert its will.
“Citizens can reside wherever they want to reside. Criminals should be brought to book. The President also warned against ethnic profiling, because we have had enough chaos. Any individual that thinks he can cause disunity in the country should have a rethink.”
