Kastina Governor Aminu Bello Masari has ordered the immediate reopening of all filling stations and cattle markets across the State.

They were shut as part of security measures to curtail cattle rustling and armed banditry in the State.

A statement by the Director Press to the Secretary to the Government of the State, Abdullahi Yar’adua in Katsina added Masari also instructed the two Emirate Councils to admonish district and village heads of the affected areas to be vigilant and ensure no any act of connivance by Sarakunan Fawa and others is allowed.

The statement also warned that Government would not hesitate to reenact the closure whenever a resurgence of any dubious activity is reported in the State.

The Nation recalls the affected petrol stations and markets were closed to curtail the supply of fuel to bandits and the transactions on rustled animals in the State.

The government had earlier announced similar order lifting the restriction on telecommunications services operated earlier in some parts of the State.
