Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari has admitted his failure in protecting the people of the state from bandits attack that has become regular thing in the state, says he has failed the residents of the state as the Chief Security Officer in the state.
Masari expressed this while speaking with pressmen at the government house in Katsina, said he is a very unhappy person because the people of the state have never had rest from bandit attacks, who kills indiscriminately, since he came into power as governor.
In his words “I don’t know what to tell my people. I cannot look at them in the face because we have failed to protect them, contrary to our pledge to ensure the security of lives and property throughout the state”.
“I never expected the behaviour and the attitude of people living in the forests, the bandits, whose behaviour is worse than that of animals. In the forest, a lion or a tiger kills only when it is hungry and it doesn’t kill all animals, it only kills the one it can eat at a time”
“But what we see here is that bandits come to town, spray bullets, kill indiscriminately for no purpose and no reason whatsoever, like the recent massacre of people at Faskari and parts of Dandume local government area. They just killed the people. How can a human being behave the way an animal cannot behave?”
“Our role is to complement efforts of the security agencies for which I believe we are doing nothing less than 90 per cent in terms of whatever is expected of us, based on resources available to us,” he said.
