Insecurity: Zamfara gov bans unlabelled bread, others

Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara has signed an executive order banning the sale of unlabelled bread, bagging of bread, sale of petrol above 50 litres and the use of tinted glasses in Zamfara State.

Governor Lawal signed the executive order yesterday in his office at the Government House, Gusau.

A statement by the Zamfara governor’s spokesman, Sulaiman Bala Idris, said the Executive Order No. 02 and Order No. 04 2024 address various concerns identified as contributing factors to the security challenges in the state. He said the restriction order was issued following recent attacks in some communities in the state.

“Following the recent spate of attacks on some communities in some local government areas of the state, particularly Zurmi, Shinkafi, Kaura Namoda and Talata Mafara, and the resurgence of activities of banditry, kidnapping in communities and some major federal roads in the state, Governor Lawal has signed Executive Order No. 02 2024, banning the sale of unlabelled and bagged bread and prohibiting some undesirable activities in the state.
