The Nigerian Communications Commission has ordered all telecom operators to shut down their networks in Zamfara State.

In one of the letters addressed to telecom operators, the executive vice chairman of the commission, Umar Danbatta, on Friday said the action was one of the strategies taken by security operatives in curbing banditry ravaging the state.

“The pervading security situation in Zamfara State has necessitated an immediate shutting down of all telecommunications service in the state from today September 03, 2021.

“This is to enable relevant security agencies carry out required activities towards addressing the security challenge in the state, in line with the requirement, Globacom is hereby directed to shut down all sites in Zamfara State and any site(s) in neighboring state that could provide telecommunications service in Zamfara State.
