Katsina State Government has donated nine Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) to military, as part of effort to end insecurity problem in the state.
Governor Aminu Bello Masari, who inspected and handed over the vehicles, said the number brought to total of 32 APCs provided by his administration. He said his administration would continue to provide logistics to military and other security agents to discharge their duties.
Masari appreciated the effort of the security in ending insecurity problem, noting that attack on communities by bandits have reduced in the state. “Before we are facing the problems of Boko Haram and now banditry, we hope and pray very soon the problem of insecurity will be over,” prayed Masari.
He said the problem of insecurity continues to linger due to the activities of informants who live within the communities.
Masari said informants were assisting and aiding bandits living in the forest, appealing to people to identify and expose informants to security agents.
He also called on the media to always report the positive side in the fight against insecurity to augment the efforts of the government.
Earlier, the Special Adviser on Security to the Governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Muhammad Katsina, commended the government for providing the vehicles, calling for their proper utilization
