Two Katsina state House of Assembly members on Monday broke into tears when they deliberated over the worsening insecurity affecting 32 out of the 34 LGAs in the state.
Katsina, the capital, is not spared. Lawmakers said kidnappers now storm homes and kidnap targets unchallenged.
The Deputy Speaker of the house, Alhaji Shehu Dalhatu-Tafoki had earlier presented a motion of urgent public importance over the level of insecurity in the state at the plenary presided over by the Speaker, Alhaji Tasi’u Maigari.
According to Dalhatu-Tafoki, (APC Faskari), despite the efforts of the federal, state governments and the security agencies, the insecurity problem was increasing everyday in the state.
He, therefore, called on the concerned government authorities and the security agencies to re-strategize their approach to tackling the rampant activities of bandits in Katsina.
Dalhatu-Tafoki said insecurity in Katsina State was worsening, with more people being killed everyday as more Local Government Areas were being affected.
“There is a serious need for the security outfits in the state to increase their outposts, especially the most insecurity affected areas.
“The outposts in those areas are not enough, they cannot overpower the bandits, despite the huge amounts of money being spent on them,” he said.
