Aminu Masari, Katsina state governor, has advised the military to simultaneously fight bandits in the north-west and north-central.
Masari made the call when he received the service chiefs led by Lucky Irabor, chief of defence staff, at the government house, Katsina, on Tuesday.
The governor said the bandits tend to relocate after they may have been flushed out of a state.
“Unless and until these criminals are simultaneously fought, no meaningful result will be achieved,” he said.
“You will always find out that if you overpower them in one area, they move to another.
“It is the same people that move to Zamfara and Niger states to continue with their criminalities.”
The governor pledged to support the military in their operations in the state.
Commenting, Irabor said the service chiefs were in the state to assess the operations of their officers in the area.
