Augustine OkezieK, Katsina

The Katsina State Government has awarded a contract for the renovation and upgrade of Mobile Police Barracks in Katsina valued at N117, 965,367.38 and also approved the recruitment of qualified youths from each of the 34 Local Governments to be trained by the Police.

The State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari who made the disclosure during the presentation of the State’s ‘20121 budget at the State House of Assembly, said these measures were aimed at stepping up the handling of banditry and other criminal activities as well as boost other security measures already in place in the state

The Governor further decried what he called ‘’ senseless acts of criminality by bandits’’ against the people of Katsina state, adding that his administration has made much effort in collaboration with the security agencies towards the protection of lives and properties.

He said ’’The State Government was pained by these senseless acts of criminality, much as it made efforts in collaboration with the security agencies towards the protection of lives and properties.

‘’Apart from the loss of lives and properties, these criminal acts have also caused untold economic dislocations of high magnitude and have as well threatened our food security which is fundamental to the survival of our people.’’

‘’As usual, we did not rest on our oars but continued to regularly offer all necessary logistics support to the security agencies to enable them to confront and tame these security challenges’’.

He further admitted that the outcry by Katsina people on the security situation reached both the Presidency and the High Commands of security agencies, the sequel to which series of security assessment visits and stakeholders meetings by federal security and other agencies were convened in Katsina

He added that the Presidential directive on banditry activities had created mass deployment of troops of the Nigerian Army and Mobile Police Force being stationed at strategic positions across volatile areas including Jibia, Batsari, Safana, Danmusa, Kankara, Faskari, Dandume, and Sabuwa Local Government Areas.

He wrote on Twitter ;

We won’t keep quiet while our Northern brothers and sisters are being massacred because of the obvious irresponsibility of the government. We are first Nigerians before tribe or religion!! If President Buhari cannot guarantee the safety of citizens, he should resign!!

He also shared the image from the mass funeral and wrote ;

This image is scary. Just as Nigeria is right now. We should set aside tribal differences. We can’t fight evil with hate in our hearts.
The level of insecurity in the country is at the highest right now!! It could be anyone tomorrow!! This government has failed woefully!
