The Minister said Ministries, Departments and Agencies should disregard any purported request from government officials aiming to confer undue advantage on anyone seeking such favours.

President Muhammadu Buhari has declared Zamfara State a no-fly-zone, in response to recent security challenges erupting from the state.

National Security Adviser (NSA), Major General Babagana Monguno (Rtd), disclosed this to State House Correspondents at the end of the National Security Council meeting, held in the State House on Tuesday.

According to Monguno, President Buhari also approved a ban on all mining activities in the state to curb the rising rate of insecurity.

According to Monguno, as part of strategies to douse tension and restore order in all parts of the country, the intelligence and security communities have been mandated to go after all non-state actors, whose activities have been fueling chaos, for prosecution.

He said the President has charged the new service chiefs to reclaim all areas under the control of bandits, insurgents and kidnappers, kidnappers and all others involved in criminal activities across the country.

“The president has also warned against ethnic profiling. We have enough of chaos. Any individual that thinks he can cause disunity should have a rethink,” he said.
