Blame Service Chiefs for Banditry in the Northeast, Not Buhari- Masari

The Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari, has blamed the service chiefs for the continued violence being perpetrated in the State by bandits.

Masari stated this on Saturday while presenting a N10 million economic empowerment cheque to 1,000 women and N7 million scholarship support cheque to 701 students in the Rimi Local Government Area of the state.

The Governor said President Muhammadu Buhari has done everything possible to end insecurity in the country and wondered why bvn the service chiefs have been unable to deal with the problem in the North, especially as they’re all northerners.

“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.”

Katsina State has recently been a hotbed for banditry, along with other North-West states.
