Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State has accused informants who support bandits and kidnappers of been behind the continued killings in the state.
Speaking when he received the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero on Wednesday, Gov Masari said the informants have greatly truncated the unflinching effort of security operatives and government in stemming the wave of banditry and other nefarious activities bedevilling the state.
According to the governor, bandits and kidnappers who launched deadly attacks on villages and communities received information from people in the state.
“Most of the bandits who launched attacks on villages in the state received information from people within the communities and this made it difficult for security agencies to operate effectively,” Masari said.
Masari, however, reiterated his earlier pledge of recreating village security councils across the 361 wards and local government security councils in the 34 local government areas of the state.
