… Gov Masari admonishes Katsina citizens to arm themselves against bandits
… Calls on people in bandits prone areas to acquire weapons, resist bandits attack
… Insists it’s morally wrong for people to submit meekly to bandits without resistance
… Regrets that such meek submission emboldens bandits in their heinous activities
WORRIED by the rising cases of activities of bandits in Katsina state in recent time, the state governor, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari yesterday said the solution to the problem is for the citizens of the state to arm themselves against the bandits. Alhaji Masari in a statement signed by his Director-General, Media, Abdu Labaran Malumfashi called on the people of the state living in areas prone to the activities of bandits to acquire weapons and defend themselves against the marauders According to the Governor, it was morally wrong for people to submit meekly to the bandits without any attempt to defend themselves, noting that security is everybody’s business.
Speaking further, the Governor noted that it is the people’s meek submission that emboldens the bandits to continue with their heinous activities with murderous frequency adding that people must divorce their mind from the mistaken notion that security is the government’s sole responsibility. Governor Masari who stated this in Jibia town yesterday when he visited to condole with the people over the death of ten people crushed to death on Monday by the operatives of the Nigerian Customs Service who was driving an official vehicle with reckless abandon assured that the state government has taken steps to seek legal redress for the families of the victims.
“Government is pursuing all the necessary legal steps to seek redress for the families of the deceased, as well as those who sustained various degrees of injuries”, he further assured, adding that legal experts had already been consulted to advise on the way forward to ensure speedy (legal) resolution of the matter. The Governor however cautioned the families of the victims not to succumb to any covert enticement from the Nigerian Customs Service, saying that doing so will compromise and jeopardize the government’s efforts to secure justice for the bereaved and injured.
“What Customs operatives are doing is wrong, and therefore unacceptable. “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 organization will then have to rethink its attitude towards its host community”, he stated.
