Masari urges residents to defend themselves against attacks

.

Katsina State governor, Aminu Masari has asked residents of the State to defend themselves against bandits attacks.

According to Channels television, the Governor wondered why residents in the State are not resisting bandits.

Masari spoke at the Katsina police headquarters in the State at the inauguration of the Katsina Joint Security Operations and Communication Control Centre on Friday.

“Security is our responsibility,” the Governor said: “Why are we surrendering our responsibility to some people? I cannot see how more committed a police officer or military officer can be more than anyone of you.

“Why should I sit in my village and be only making telephone calls without doing nothing?

“Every bandit, every criminal has an address, has a location, and they are human beings like us. The only difference is that they have taken arms against us; does it mean we have nothing to take against them?

“Do we mean we should vacate all our villages, all our farms, all our houses, and surrender them to bandits, and wait for police officer Emeka all the way from Enugu to come to Katsina and rescue me? This is ridiculous. Why?

“I think part of what this Katsina initiative needs to do is to go round all these local governments, let us talk to the people, defend yourselves”, he said.
