Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State has alleged that killer bandits terrorising his state are from neighbouring Zamfara State.
He made this known while speaking to newsmen at his home in Kafur area of Katsina State.
According to Masari, the local governments that share boundaries with Zamfara are now danger zones.
While calling for the bandits to be dealt with, the Zamfara governor said their activities are truncating his administration’s effort to restore normalcy in Katsina.
He said: “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, it 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.”
