Carry weapons to protect yourselves— Gov. Masari orders residents 

The Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari has urged residents to seek weapons to protect themselves from attacks. 

Masari who made the remarks on Tuesday while paying a condolence visit to the families of 10 people killed by customs officials in the Jibia Local Government Area last week, said all bandits must be killed too. 

Katsina is one of the worst-hit states by the bandits and kidnappers in northwestern Nigeria.

On December 11, gunmen abducted 344 students from a secondary school in Kankara, Katsina State, and held them, hostage, for six days. 

“We must intensify prayers with clean minds to seek God’s forgiveness and intervention.

“Do not succumb to any covert enticement from the customs service, no matter what they offer or promise to do for you. 

“Whatever they want to do for you, let it be in the open, not in secret.

“If you accept any secret offer, then you will be truncating the government’s efforts to seek justice for you, but if you resist any untoward move, the organisation will then have to rethink its attitude towards its host community”. He concluded.
