THE Zamfara State government says it has intercepted vehicles conveying food, drinks and fuel to various bandit camps in the state. 

The government said it had also arrested about 100 violators of Governor Bello Matawalle’s executive order to restore law and order in the state. 

Secretary of the state’s Special Taskforce on Security, Mr Abdulrasheed Haruna, made the disclosure to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gusau on Wednesday. Matawalle had established the Special Taskforce to enforce measures to address the lingering security challenges of mass kidnapping for ransom and cattle rustling by gunmen facing the state.
