Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari has urged residents of the state in areas prone to activities of bandits to acquire weapons and defend themselves.

The governor stated this during his visit to Jibia town to condole with families of 10 people who were recently crushed by operatives of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) through reckless driving.

He expressed that security is everybody’s business, pointing out that it is not the responsibility of the government alone.

“It is the people’s meek submission that emboldens bandits to continue with their heinous activities with murderous frequency. “People must divorce their minds from the mistaken notion that security is government’s sole responsibility alone,” Masari said.
