Insecurity: Military chiefs visit Katsina to clear bandits


A delegation of Military Chiefs led by Major General B.I Ahanotu on Thursday arrived Katsina to assess the escalation of killings by bandits in the state and to map out strategies aimed at putting a stop to activities of banditry and kidnapping in the state, as ordered by President Muhammad Buhari last Wednesday.

General Ahanotu told the Deputy Governor, Alhaji Manir Yakubu who stood in for Governor Aminu Bello Masari that they were sent to the State by The Chief of Defense Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin and the Chief of Army Staff, General Tukur Buratai, to assess the recent attacks by bandits in the state particularly the killings in Batsari and several other Local government areas of the state.

The General further disclosed that they were also in the state to commiserate with the Government and people of the state and to reiterate the commitment of security agencies to the security of lives and property.

Earlier while welcoming the visitors, the deputy governor lamented that Katsina is in a state of mourning because of incessant attacks by bandits, kidnappers, and other security challenges.

He thanked the President for promptly responding to the distress call from the state, saying the citizens of the state are happy that the President wasted no time in sending an assessment team, especially after receiving a briefing from the Governor on Wednesday.

Alhaji Yakubu assured the military delegation of State Government’s support and assistance to ensure a quick job is done and that the peace in the state is restored.

Other members of the delegation include AVM Ohvo, Director of Operations NAF headquarters, Mr. Bassey Eteng, DSS headquarters, DIG Abdullahi from Police headquarters, Brig. Gen. Omoigee of Army headquarters Abuja and Navy Captain Katagun of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Abuja.
