“Herdsmen leadership at all levels should counsel their children to desist from joining criminal gangs killing people or destroying property.

“A situation where people are being killed on daily basis is unacceptable.

“Therefore, these criminals must repent or we as government, will know how to deal with them’’, he said.

The governor lamented that Katsina, the home state of the President, is now being portrayed in bad light as a result of the recurring banditry.
