Katsina gov’t accused the Army of not doing enough to fight insecurity in the State
The Katsina State government has accused the Nigerian Army of a nonchalant attitude towards the fight against banditry in the state.
This accusation was made by the Katsina State’s Secretary to the State Government, Mustapha Muhammad Inuwa in an interview with a Radio Nigeria reporter and aired on the same station and other sister stations on Monday morning.
But Katsina Post learns that during the program which also featured the Commander, 17 Brigade, Nigerian Army, Katsina, Brigadier General Lukman Omoniyi dismissed the accusation saying that his men are trying their best.
“Here in Batsari there are about 360 soldiers there but bandits would be launching attacks in 2 to 3 KM and they will not do anything. According to them, they have no equipment to fight.” The SGS said when asked why he made the accusation.
Mustapha Inuwa, however, commended the Police officers.
