The Zuru Emirate Council in Kebbi State, has cautioned residents against aiding criminals by posting pictures of military operations on social media.

This is contained in a communiqué signed by Mr Hassan Muhammad-Gado, secretary of the council, at the end of a working visit of the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 8 Division of Nigerian Army, Maj.-Gen. Usman Yusuf on Thursday in Zuru.

Muhammad-Gado said the visit was aimed at familiarising the GOC with the traditional leaders as well to seek for their collaboration in the task of ensuring security in Sokoto, Kebbi, Zamfara and Katsina states.

“The visit of the GOC gave rise to the following recommendations; the need for the state and federal government to provide logistics and equipment to the military to enable it effectively combat banditry and criminal activities in the North West.

“The need for both local and state government to develop access roads to affected areas in order to facilitate more effective security operations.

“The need for the GOC to pursue and provide good welfare for officers and men under his command.

“The need for members of the communities to desist from aiding criminals by posting videos and pictures of military and police operations on the social media. This often and inadvertently help criminals to prepare ambush against security agencies,” he said.

Muhammad-Gado also advised members of the public to report bandits’ informants to security agencies for necessary action.
