Governor Masari however instructed the two Emirate Councils in the State to admonish District and Village Heads of the affected areas to be vigilant and ensure that no any act of connivance by Sarakunan Fawa and others is allowed.

In a statement, signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Mustapha Muhammad Inuwa, the government warned that it would not hesitate to close again, where a resurgence of any dubious activity is noticed.
