FG builds houses for victims of bandits attacks in Katsina
The Federal Government has perfected plans through the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI) to build houses for the Internally Displaced Persons as a result of the banditry attack in Katsina State.
This was disclosed by the commission’s delegation led by its federal Commissioner, Alhaji Bashir Garba, in Katsina on Thursday when he visited the Katsina State Governor in his office.
The Federal Commissioner also said that they were in Katsina to commiserate with the government and people over the recent attacks of Dankar and Tsanwa communities in Batsari Local Government Area of the state.
Garba said that they brought food items, clothing, sleeping and other relief materials to the victims of the attacks.
While speaking during the visit, the Governor of the State, HE Aminu Masari attributed the recent attacks and killings of some people in rural communities across the state to ignorance and barbaric behaviour.
“This is a barbaric and animalistic behaviour because the perpetrators of these crimes are like animals because they don’t have western or Qur’anic education.
“These people are living with animals in the bush without any education, they behave like the wild animals in the bush,” the governor said.
Masari said that the calamity that had befallen the state had been brought under control, pointing out that many suspects were arrested in connection with the case.
The governor thanked members of NCFRMI for coming to commiserate with the government and people of the state over the unfortunate incident.
He appealed to the commission to consult with the government and people of the state over their plan to build houses to resettle the internally displaced persons.
“This is because every place has its own peculiarities of building their houses.
“The houses you will build for the internally displaced persons in my state must be in conformity with the people’s culture and tradition and the location for building such houses matters a lot,” Masari said.
