Katsina: Traditional Rulers Are Complicit And In Collaboration With Bandits -Garba Shehu

The Presidential Spokesperson has said that the challenges of insecurity and incessant attacks ongoing in Katsina has lasted this long because some traditional leaders are helping Bandits.

Garba Shehu in a TV program on Monday June 15th 2020 revealed that plans had been made severally to bring to book bandits operating in Katsina State the home state of President Mohammadu Buhari. However it's been discovered that traditional rulers always made room for escape of bandits stating that some of them are benefitting from the attacks.

He said
" It is not that we are making direct accusations on anyone but it is also true that even in the president's home state, some traditional rulers have been found Complicit and in collaboration with bandits to harm their own people".

Making reference to a neighbouring state Zamfara he revealed that Emirs and District heads at some point had to be removed. The Nigerian Airforce also put a number of aircraft in Katsina during the early days of the attacks in Zamfara which was the epicenter then.

Though the aircrafts are still very much present but intelligence reports from the Nigeria Airforce revealed that whenever there was planned operations by the Air force, and aircrafts take off from Katsina Airport to touch down Zamfara, targets always suddenly disappear due to phone calls been made to them by traditional leaders in the area.

Garba concluded by charging Nigerians to accept the responsibility of helping the armed forces by providing useful information noting that the President Mohammadu Buhari does not have solutions to all problems.
