Zamfara Govt Shut Down Private Media Houses For Covering PDP Rally

The Zamfara State government has mandated the closure of all federal and private media houses in the state for covering a Peoples Democratic Party rally.

Consequently, the commissioner of police in the state has been directed to arrest all journalists who attended the event. The order was announced by the state commissioner for information, Malam Ibrahim Magaji Dosara, via the local state radio.

The affected media organizations include Radio Nigeria, Pride FM, NTA, and Gamji FM among others. According to the commissioner, the closure of the media houses was based on the violation of the state security council directive on the suspension of political activities following the upsurge in banditry in parts of the state.
