Bandits are worst than animals – Katsina Gov laments killings



Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, on Monday lamented the insecurity ravaging the state recently, claiming lives of residents.

The governor who declared that he has failed in the responsibility of protecting lives and properties in the state, said the bandits are worst than animal.

The State has been under repeated attacks from bandits who kill, rape, injure the people, burn houses and rustle cattle.

Governor Masari revealed this to newsmen on Monday at the Government Kano.

The Katsina helmsman said he cannot look at the people “in the face because we have failed to protect them, contrary to our pledge to ensure the security of lives and property”.

He noted that 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”.

He lamented that the bandits “just killed the people”, querying how human beings “behave the way an animal cannot behave?”

On Monday night, the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) referred to Masari’s apology in a statement on the attack on the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) by Femi Adesina, President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesman.
