The Katsina State Government on Tuesday said it has banned the transportation of cattle from the state to any other state in Nigeria.

This was contained in a statement signed by the state government spokesperson, Abdu Labaran.

The ban is part of efforts to improve security in the state and is backed by the Security Challenges (Containment) Order signed into law by Governor Aminu Bello Masari.

The order also bans trucks/lorries carrying firewood from the bush and the sale of animals at the markets of Jibia, Batsari, Safana, Danmusa, Kankara, Malumfashi, Charanchi, Mai’aduwa, Kafur, Faskari, Sabuwa, Baure, Dutsinma, and Kaita Local Government Areas.

The order prohibited the sale of second-hand motorcycles at Charanchi market, carrying three persons on motorcycles and carrying more than three passengers on a tricycle.

“In addition, the Security Challenges (Containment) Order also imposed the (total) closure of Jibia-Gurbi Baure road to all motorists, with travelers playing the road to use the alternative Funtua road until further notice, and (the closure of) Kankara-Sheme road to all commercial vehicles, who are similarly advised to go through Funtua,” the statement added.

“However, private non-commercial vehicles may ply the road if they so wish.

“Furthermore, the Order also limits the sale of fuel of NOT more than N5,000.00 to motorists to ONLY 2 designated filling stations in Jibia, Batsari, Safana, Danmusa, Zaka Kara, Faskari, Sabha, Dandume, Musawa, Matazu, Dutsinma, Kurfi, Danja and Kafur Local Government Areas, even as it reinforces the prohibition of the sale of petrol in Jerrycans at filling stations.

“Still, the Order has reinforced the ban on the operation of commercial tricycles and motorcycles from 10.00 am to 6.00 am in the state capital 6.00 pm to 6.00 am in the Front Line Local Government Areas.

“The Order, however, permits identified essential workers (health personnel, security personnel, and journalists) to use tricycles and motorcycles BEYOND the banned periods.”
