He noted that the politicians are using the ravaging insecurity as leverage ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The Governor alleged that the unnamed politicians want to dent the image of All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state and the country and portray them as being passive in the face of ravaging insecurity.
Masari also attributed the spate of killings in the state to reprisal attacks by bandits against the cold-blooded murder of their suspected relatives or collaborators by groups that had been outlawed by the state government.
He said activities of the groups, including the well-known Yan’sankee teams, were counter-productive, as they would travel to distant villages and communities to kill one or two suspects, but the irate bandits would strike back later, killing innocent persons in their numbers in the affected villages.
A group under the aegis of Concerned Katsina Youth, had stated that recent developments leading to wanton killings of innocent people in the state were a testament to the fact that the state government could not guarantee the safety of lives and property of citizens of the state.
