Katsina gov’t commends security officers, media in fighting insecurity
The Katsina State Government is happy to note that, the general security situation in the state is gradually returning to normalcy. The current security operation by the combined efforts of the military and other security Forces is achieving the desired results of dislodging the bandits from their hideouts and giving hope to people to go back to their normal lives.
In the regard,we wish to acknowledge the satisfactory efforts of military and other security forces in the restoration of gradual peace and security in the affected areas. We hope the tempo will be sustained so that sooner than expected banditry will be a thing of the past in the state.
In addition, the S.A acknowledge the efforts of the media in enlightening the members of the public on the menace and the dangers of connivance or harbouring the criminals is highly appreciated.
This indeed assisted in frustrating the activities of criminals and giving hope to the communities to go back to normal life.
As you can observe, in spite of the minor security challenges in affected communities many farmers have returned to their farms. We hope that the remaining people at IDPS camps will soon go back to their areas and continue their normal activities.
We are therefore calling on members of the public to assist the security agents with useful information to enable them perform their duties effectively.
It is important to note that we can defeat criminality through collaborative partnership between responsible members of the public, security forces and the government.
This is our mission. This is our hope, and this is our direction.
Thank you very much.
