Governor of Katsina state, Aminu Bello Masari, on Saturday blamed the nation’s Security Chiefs for the incessant attacks by bandits in the state.
Masari said President Muhammadu Buhari has done everything it takes to ensure the security of lives and property in the region.
The governor made the remarks while presenting a N10m economic empowerment cheque to 1,000 women and N7m scholarship support cheque to 701 students in the Rimi LGA.
According to Masari, he couldn’t understand why the service chiefs haven’t done more to help the region since they were all northerners.
He also said the bandits are now camouflaging and living with the people.
“We know them and their parents,” he said. “To identify bandits in rural communities is not a difficult task, because you know his business, his farmland capacity, his livestock.
“And if one day he buys a new motorcycle amounting to over N200,000 naira, then you must know that he is selling people’s lives.”
