The acting Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, has advised the public to ignore fake social media reports on Federal Government’s decision to suspend mining activities in Zamfara.

The federal government through the acting IGP had on Sunday announced the suspension of mining activities in the state and threatened to revoke licenses of violators of the order.

The government also ordered all foreigners engaged in mining activities to leave the area within 48 hours as part of measures to check banditry in the state.

 Adamu, however, noted that, the order issued by the government may attract various fake social media reports, and advised that, such reports should be ignored in the interest of peace and stability in the country.
