In an effort to enlighten the general public about their safety especially in this era of insecurity in the land, Vanguard newspaper conducted an investigation about the roads that are relatively insecure across the country.
According to their report, Some major roads in Katsina State are now deserted for fear of attacks by armed bandits and kidnappers.
The roads include:
1. Jibia – Gurbi – Kauran-Namoda;
2. Dutsinma – Kankara – Sheme – Faskari;
3. Musawa – Matazu;
5. Dandume – Sabuwa;
6. Sheme – Kankara and Dutsinma – Funtua which many motorists avoid between 6pm and 6am.
Jibia – Gurbi – Kaura Namoda Road which links Katsina and Zamfara states is, according to residents the most dreadful.
When contacted, the spokesperson for Katsina State Police Command, Superintendent of Police Gambo Isah, however, said the security situation has improved on major highways and other roads across the state.
He said: “The highways in the state are now safe but the Police Commissioner, Sanusi Buba, is not relenting in his efforts. He has deployed officers and men as well as operational vehicles to the highways to ensure that the roads are safe. Divisional Police Officers, DPOs, have also been mandated to create nipping points.’’
