Aminu Bello Masari,The Kaduna State Governor has stated that 99 per cent of bandits killing and kidnapping indigenes in his state are from Zamfara state.

Katsina which is the home state of President Buhari has witnessed several attacks from bandits. Youths in the state have taken to the streets on several occasions to protest the incessant killings carried out by bandits.

Speaking with journalists in Funtua over the weekend, Governor Masari said three major local Government Areas namely Sabwa, Dandume, and Faskari that share common boundaries with Zamfara, have become the epicenter for banditry activities in the state.

While calling on security agencies to act fast and help restore peace in the state, Governor Masari 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 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.”
