President Muhammadu Buhari has declared Zamfara a no-fly zone. He has also approved a ban on mining activities by non-state actors, in moves meant  to curb the rising insecurity in the state.

General Babagana Monguno (rtd), the national security adviser (NSA), disclosed these to state house correspondents at the end of the national security council meeting presided over by president Buhari on Tuesday.

Monguno said the federal government will not hesitate to use kinetic means to restore normalcy in the country.

He said defense and intelligence organisations have been mandated to ensure the country does not slide into anarchy.

The NSA said  the president also directed service chiefs to reclaim all areas in control of bandits, insurgents and kidnappers.

“We are not going to be blackmailed. The government has the responsibility to assert its will,” he said.

“Citizens can reside wherever they want to reside. Anybody who is a criminal should be brought to book.

“The president has also warned against ethnic profiling. We have had enough of chaos.

“Any individual that thinks he can cause disunity, should have a rethink.”
