This is contained in a statement issued by the aide to Governor Aminu Masari on media on Tuesday.
The law, which will take effect on August 31, 2021, contains 12 steps including:
1. Prohibit the transport of cattle from Katsina State to any state in Nigeria.
2. Prohibition of carrying wood in trucks out of the desert.

6. The law then ordered the closure of Jibiya Road to Gurbi Baure where vehicles would stop, following the Puntuwa road instead.
7. The Kankara-Sheme road is also off-limits to taxis and they are advised to follow the Funtua road. Only private vehicles are instructed to follow the road if they need to.
8. The law also stipulates the sale of petrol to vehicles buying above N5,000, will not be sold in 12 local government areas.

11. The law also prohibits Napep motorcycle traffic from 10pm to 6am in Katsina, and from 6pm to 6am in the local government areas of the state.
12. However, the law allows health workers, journalists and security personnel to use a Keke Napep motorcycle during prohibited times.
Katsina State is one of the most insecure states in northwestern Nigeria at the moment.
Even in the past the authorities in the state have taken various measures to curb the threat it faces.
The state governor recently advised the people of the state to take up arms to protect themselves, a move that has sparked controversy.
While authorities say they are doing their best to ensure peace in the area, reports indicate an increase in attacks and kidnappings, indicating that there is still a long way to go.
