Telecommunication services have been shut down in 14 out of the 23 local government areas of Sokoto state.
Governor Aminu Tambuwal made the announcement yesterday during an interview with Voice of America (VOA) Hausa Service. He said it is part of the effort to check banditry in the state.
He was quoted saying that "the affected council areas are the most vulnerable to bandit attacks in the state."
Isa local government area shares boundaries with Shinkafi LGA in Zamfara State, while Goronyo and Sabon Birni from west and north respectively have borders with the Republic of Niger in the east.
Recall that similar case happened in Zamfara State to enable the Nigerian Arm Forces to forestall law and order in the affected States.
