Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has declared Zamfara State a No-Fly-Zone with immediate effect.

Buhari also approved the imposition and enforcement of ban on all mining activities in Zamfara State with immediate effect.

The move to declare Zamfara a no-fly-zone by Buhari comes after armed bandits kidnapped over 200 girls at a boarding school last week.

However, the kidnappers released the students earlier today after negotiations with Zamfara Commissioner.
