The Zamfara State Government has announced the temporary shutdown of Yan Waren Daji cattle market in Tsafe Local Government Area of the State.
The Commissioner of Information and Culture, Mannir Muazu Haidara Kaura, disclosed this in a statement issued to newsmen in Gusau, the state capital.
According to the statement, the closure of the cattle market was due to a report received by the state security committee on the sale of rustled cattle by suspected bandits.
Haidara called on security agencies in the state to be vigilant and ensure compliance.
DAILY POST recalls that the Zamfara State Government last week announced the closure of seven cattle markets as part of the measures to address the security challenges ravaging the state.
