According to him, communities and villages within Batsari Local Government Area of the State, are seriously suffering from security threats as the residents are not be able to harvest their crops because of the fear.

The district head gave the names of the communities where the bandits are now erecting their tents and hiding as: Yaso Duba, Sabon-garin Dunburawa, Ragi and Labor.

He appealed to the security chiefs to deploy more security operatives to the affected areas so that farmers can harvest their crops. "Batsari Local Government Area of Katsina State is one of the areas worse hit by insurgency due to its proximity to Zamfara State and the dreaded Rugu Forest. We are predominantly farmers, who cultivate largely sesame, millets, maize, guinea corn, sweet potatoes and sugarcane, among other crops, but banditry activities have reduced our efforts," he said.

Alhaji Mua’zu however, advised residents of the area, to exercise patience, even as they are facing hardship in their legitimate endeavors, pointing out that banditry activities would soon come to an end.
