Phone Networks Shut Down In Katsina 13 LGAs
Telecommunication services have been shut down in Katsina State, dailytrust.com reports.
At least 13 Local Government Areas are affected by the development which may not be unconnected with the ongoing security operations against bandits in the North West.
The affected LGAs are Sabuwa, Faskari, Dandume, Batsari, Danmusa, Kankara, Jibia, Safana, Dutsin-Ma and Kurfi that are on the fringes of the Ruggu forest where most of the bandits are hiding.
The other three include Funtua, Bakori and Malumfashi.
This comes a few days after the National Communications Commission (NCC) denied plan to shut down telecom sites in Katsina.
Recall that the NCC had refuted a trending social media story claiming that the commission had ordered telecom service providers to shut down their sites in Katsina.
