Bandits still launchs attacks in Katsina despite amnesty, Senator Barkiya laments

0

The senator representing Katsina central senatorial districts, Kabir Abdullahi Barkiya has said despite amnesty being granted bandits in Katsina State, killings and kidnappings of innocent citizens continued unabated.

The senator raised the alarm on the floor of the Red Chamber during a plenary session on Tuesday.

Kabir said that many people living in Batasri, Rumar, Tsohuwa, Kasai and Yargamji communities, especially women and children, had become victims of incessant attacks by armed bandits.

He said that 17 people had been killed, while 49 women were kidnapped in Basari, Gobirawa and Safana local governments.

Tribuneonlineng reports that while moving a point of order on Matter of Urgent Public Importance, Senator Barkiya called the attention of the Senate to “the recent but incessant trends of attacks, kidnap and killings unleashed by bandits on the usually very peaceful Katsina State which has brought commercial, religious and social activities in the state to a standstill, resulting to loss of lives, displacement of residents of towns and villages, destruction of livestock and crippling businesses.”

He recalled that in Kurfi Local government Area, 49 people were killed while in Shimfida village in Jibia Local Government 20 people were killed, 30 people kidnapped and 10 vehicles were burnt after looting all the belongings and goods of the victims.

He declared that despite the efforts of the state government to dialogue and negotiate with the bandits to bring a lasting solutions to these problems and a complete determination of the attacks and killings, there were still reported cases of banditry in some local governments like Batsari and Kurfi indicating that urgent action was needed to nip these attacks in the bud.
