The Katsina State Government has ordered the reopening of all fuel stations and cattle markets earlier closed as part of measures to tackle the cattle rustling and banditry in the state.

This reopening order is contained in a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Mustapha Inuwa, and issued to newsmen on Saturday.

It said that Gov. Aminu Masari also instructed the two Emirate Councils in the state, Katsina and Daura, to implore district and village heads of the affected areas to be vigilant.

According to the statement, the governor also called on them to ensure that no act of connivance by butcher leaders (Sarakunan Fawa) and others is allowed.

“The governor also warned that the government would not hesitate to impose the closure where a resurgence of any dubious activity is noticed.

“It may be recalled that the affected fuel stations and markets were closed down as part of the Security Challenges Containment Order issued by the government.

“The security containment order was aimed at curtailing the supply of fuel to bandits and transactions on rustled animals in the state,” the statement recalled.
