How Lions, Tigers Behave Better Than Bandits Terrorising Katsina - Gov. Masari

How Lions, Tigers Behave Better Than Bandits Terrorising Kat

The Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari, has compared the marauding bandits spilling blood of residents in the state to lions and tigers in the jungle which, he noted, are more conscionable than the bandits. 

President Muhammadu Buhari is a native of Katsina State. 

Addressing reporters in Katsina, Masari admitted his inability to protect his people in the face of the attack, adding that he is a very unhappy person because Katsina residents have never had peace since he assumed office. 

His words, “I don’t know what to tell them. I cannot look at them in the face because we have failed to protect them, contrary to our pledge to ensure the security of lives and property throughout the state.

“I never expected the behaviour and the attitude of people living in the forests, the bandits, whose behaviour is worse than that of animals. 

“In the forest, a lion or a tiger kills only when it is hungry and it doesn’t kill all animals, it only kills the one it can eat at a time. 

“But what we see here is that bandits come to town, spray bullets, kill indiscriminately for no purpose and no reason whatsoever, like the recent massacre of people at Faskari and parts of Dandume local government area. 

“They just killed the people. How can a human being behave the way an animal cannot behave?” he asked.

The Governor however maintained that he is out "to complement efforts of the security agencies for which I believe we are doing nothing less than 90 per cent in terms of whatever is expected of us, based on resources available to us".
