Barely 48 hours after the lockdown of three local government areas on the orders of the Zamfara State Government as well as the suspension of all political activities owing to the resurgence of attacks in some communities, the state government has ordered the closure of some federal and state-owned media houses for security reasons.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information, Ibrahim Dosara on Saturday night.

The directive which was aired on the state-owned radio said the government took the decision in view of the worsening security situation in the state.
To this end, it directed the state commissioner of police to arrest any journalist who violated the order.

The affected media houses are Radio Nigeria Pride FM Gusau, NTA Gusau, Gamji FM, Gamji TV Gusau and Al’umma TV Gusau.
