Katsina Governor begin tour to meet with bandits in 8 LGAs today
Katsina State Governor Aminu Masari will today start a tour of councils in the state to interface with bandits terrorising the state, as part of efforts aimed at addressing insecurity in the state.
The meeting is aimed at convincing them to lay down their arms and embrace peace, with possible amnesty for those that would comply.
Masari is expected to travel to eight councils during which top bandits in those areas would meet with him, and possibly give their terms for cessation of hostilities.
The councils include Jibia, Batsari, Danmusa, Sabuwa, Kankara, Safana, Faskari and Dandume.
They are all close to the dreaded Rugu forest, which is called different names in parts of the state.
It was learnt that the governor would be visiting two councils per day.
