The entire people of Batsari Local Government area are in doomed due to the high level of insecurity related to kidnapping rocking the environment.
Your Excellency Sir, what happened on the 5th of February, 2019 at night where an unknown gunmen attacked a location in Batsari very close to the abbatoir and they were able to killed a man identify as Mal. Nafi’u Garba at the same time they kidnapped five people including a breastfeeding mother with her four months baby. The kidnappers are demanding for N30m (Thirty Million Naira) as ransoms of the victims.
Your Excellency Sir, the securities are quite doing their best to secure the environment from the hands of these criminals but the community need to be carried alone; cause community involvement will give room for curtailing such menace in Batsari Local Government, the elites are the relevant stakeholders due to their vast experiences as retired military, police, Customs and State Security personals that contributed to this nation now it is high time the Katsina State Government under the able leader Rt. Hon. Aminu Bello Masari to have a critical look by having a round table discussion with both the ex-men and youth wing. We can only solve our problems when we sacrifice for others and unite for a common goal by trying to do away with politicizing virtually everything within the community, building our resilience is of paramount importance to achieve our targeted goals.
Your Excellency Sir, I wish to give some following suggestions:
- Katsina State Government should matter of urgency call a round table discussion with the community relevant stakeholders for a way forward.
- The State government should liaise with people of Batsari elites to sponsor at least 10 people to study security related to Forensic Science (Forensic Chemistry, Computer and Geography etc).
- The community should revive the philanthropist attitude in supporting the Mass literacy classes and the nomadic schools for enlightening the rural people.
- The State Government should support the community in sourcing vital information from all the telecommunication service providers within the terrain in collaboration of Nigerian Communication Commission.
Finally we all should keep on supplicating towards Allah for bringing such menace to an end for peaceful coexistence in Batsari Local Government and at the same time we ask Allah to bring back the breastfeeding mother safe and healthy and forgive our father, elder, brother who lost his life during the gunshot by the kidnappers in person of Mal. Nafi’u Garba (Mai Walda).
