Few days ago, Gov. Bello came up with a strategy on how to fish out bandits in Zamfara, and Gov. Masari has decided to modify and follow the same step. Do you think this step can work for Katsina state?
Attacking states in the Northern states in Nigerian seems to be an habit bandits have grown fond of. Over the last few months, the president and governors in the North have been trying to come up with a strategy.
Two days ago, Zamfara State Governor, Bello came up with a good strategy that might fish bandits out, and curb their activities in Zamfara State, and this is a step Governor Masari has decided to modify and follow.
Governor Masari made it known that from today, all the major roads in Katsina state should be closed down to prevent disguise and free passage of bandits in the roads.
The fastest way to get to a destination is by passing major roads where you don't need to turn. This might be a good step as bandits will have a hard time going to their destinations and escaping without being detected.
Governor Aminu also decided to order fueling stations to stop selling fuel above five thousand naira to motorists. This might sound extreme but it will surely stop bandits from buying fuel and storing it for future purposes.
Governor Masari also stopped the transportation of cattles in some areas in Katsina state. Many bandits have decided to start disguising as herdsmen. This is a good step to help in curbing their activities.
It might not be much, but declaring our supports for Northern governors and showing sympathy to those who are victims of banditry will encourage them to fight back and let them know that they are valued.
. Do you think the North can win the fight against bandits?
