Insecurity: Civilians decision to fight bandits yielding result in Katsina
The decision of residents of Sabuwa and Dandume local government of Katsina State to confront the bandits terrorizing the areas is yielding positive results.
Comrade Luwabilu Sani Sabuwa, disclosed that the boldness of the people to take the war to the bandits was reducing their violent attacks in the area.
“Recently, they attacked Dungun Mu’azu and kidnapped three people. But honestly, the decision of civilians to join the war is really making impact,” he said.
According to Group Captain Sadiq Garba Shehu (rtd) the fact that Nigeria was now in war situation and the projection that Nigerian soldiers were not up to 200,000, while the police not up to 400,000, civilians need to join the fight, especially in volunteering information.
He said though going to the battle field was dangerous for civilians as they lack the requisite training and weapons, it was better than staying at home for the criminals to breach their humanity and kill them one after the other.
Captain Shehu said Nigeria needs to engage in massive recruitment of soldiers and police in order to address the current challenges. This, he said, was aside provision of adequate equipment and ensuring synergy among all security agencies in Nigeria.
