Katsina assembly members call on gov’t to allow residents to carry arms, defend themselves 

Tears flew from the eyes of several Katsina State House of Assembly members today on the floor of the House while debating a motion on the state’s rising insecurity by member representing Safana constituency, Hon. Abdul Jalal Haruna Runka.

Recall that several communities in no fewer than 12 LGAs of Katsina State have been under bandit attacks, kidnappings and general insecurity lately.

Daily Trust reports that last week, five people were killed, a divisional police officer shot and a council chairman kidnapped in multiple attacks on Faskari and Sabuwa.

While contributing to the debate, Deputy speaker of Katsina state assembly, Hon Shehu Dalhatu Tafoki who represents Faskari at the state assembly said hardly a day goes by without reported attack across the area saying that many have been killed, maimed and kidnapped.

According to him, Faskari local government can now be compared to Maiduguri, saying, ” Even last night these bandits attack Daudawa where they kidnapped four people and injured many.”

Daily Trust reports that as Tafoki was making this submission, tears began to floor from his eyes which made him unable to continue and choose to take his sit.

Prior to him, several members have lamented the situation in their respective constituencies.

AbdulJalal Runka (Safana) pleaded for rescind of the lockdown in the area to enable his constituents who are daily being attacked and their animals rustled to be allowed to sell the remaining animals to at least have something to eat rather than losing them to bandits.

Ibrahim Machika (Sabuwa) said if the present security agents can’t address the security challenge in the state they should be replaced or government should allow the locals to protect themselves.

Also in his submission, Jabiru Yau (Batsari) called on the federal government to really look into the insecurity in Katsina with a view to addressing it.

Member representing Katsina constituency, Hon Aliyu Abubakar Albaba called on government to allow residents to carry arms in order to protect themselves.
