Aminu Tambuwal Masari, the Governor of Katsina State is pointing fingers at Zamfara State to be the home of bandits that have been terrorizing his citizens.
For a long time, there have been murders and kidnappings in the Katsina State and the youth have protested several times to get the attention of the state to do something about that situation.
According to Governor Masari, Dandume, Faskari and Sabwa local government areas are the major areas where reports of killings are constant and 99 percent of the bandits that cause these troubles live in Zamfara.
He was speaking with some journalist during the weekend at Funtua.
Read what he said below.
”The nefarious activities of bandits from Zamfara had truncated the efforts of my administration in restoring normalcy in the state. The only places that we are having problems are Faskari, Sabwa, and Dandume Local Governments but all other local governments in the state, especially Jibia, Batsari, Safana and Danmusa there is relative peace.
From the reports, I receive every morning if you find any case of rustling or kidnapping is mostly around Faskari, Sabwa, and Dandume. We have been complaining to the military authority to take full control of Gurbi-Gidan Jaja-Kaura Namoda areas of Zamfara State.
Unless security is fully reinforced in these areas, being the danger zone where most of the bandits live and move freely, we cannot secure Katsina without security in Zamfara, because 99 percent of all the attacks and kidnappings happening in Katsina were from Zamfara.”
He has therefore called on security agencies to help him restore nomalcy in his state.
