Governor Aminu Masari has asked the military to prove its might by intervening and dealing decisively with bandits who believe they can trouble the peace of Katsina State using firearms.
Mr Masari made the call Speaking when he received a delegation of military top officers who were on a courtesy visit to the governor at the General Muhammadu Buhari Government House, Katsina state.
The governor assured the military that he will continue to support them and other security agencies to ensure that peace is restored in the state entirely.
He states that the support from his government is part of its responsibility in a bid to protect the lives and property of the general citizens.
Governor Masari noted that failure on the part of governments to put in place some long term plans to curb bandits activities have led to the current situation in the state.
He, however, promised that his government will do all it can to ensure that the banditry issues are put to check, with adequate plans that will contain future occurrences.
