The directive is contained in a statement by the state’s Commissioner for Security and Home Affairs, Mamman Tsafe, today.

He also added that all government ministries and departments have been instructed to cease any further associations with any NGO, stating that punishment will be taken against any MDAs found to have such relationships.
