Also reacting to the worsening insecurity in the country, Katsina State youths under the auspices of Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) said spate of killings, banditry, kidnapping and rape orchestrated by bandits in the state points to the president’s inability to secure the country.
The CNC said the atrocities committed by bandits in Batsari and Faskari local government areas of the state, have unforeseen economic, social and political implications that if not tackled will engulf the entire state.
In a communiqué issued yesterday by the northwest vice chairman of CNG, Mr. Jamilu Aliyu, after a roundtable discussion on how to end banditry, kidnapping and rape in Katsina State held in Katsina, the group said the government’s attempts to reassert public confidence with repeated rhetoric of ‘being on top of the situation’ had waned as killings and kidnapping for ransom become a daily occurrence in most parts of the state.
“The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has failed the nation and in particular, Katsina State in the vital area of improving citizens lives and securing property. Many of our parents and children are still in captivity and many of them are widows and orphans.
“The rise in the spate of banditry and kidnapping in places such as Faskari and Batsari lately has become a major trying point for everyone but the authorities have remained detached from the reality,” said Aliyu.
