Katsina governor meets Osinbajo, security chiefs over rise in kidnapping, banditry

Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina

Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, on Tuesday met with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the State House in Abuja.

Masari told journalists after the meeting that he was consulting with security chiefs over recurring incidents of kidnapping and banditry in the state.

He said: “Part of what we are doing about kidnapping and banditry is that I have seen some security chiefs.

“Before I leave Abuja, I will again see the Inspector General of Police (IG-P) and the Director-General, Department of Security Services (DSS).

“This is to further discuss and develop what we are doing with the military and the people that are on ground at present. It is not only about deployment; it is about strategy.”

On his re-election, Masari said: “We are happy to say that we have done more than 70 percent of what we promised the people of Katsina.

“When we went round, we promised them that we would continue with our agenda on education, health, agriculture, infrastructure and security.

“Because of what we have done in the last four years, they believed us and massively voted for us.”
