The Katsina State Governor, Dikko Umaru Radda, has revealed that rampaging bandits who are terrorising some parts of the state are threatening to attack him.
The governor, who disclosed this Friday during an expanded emergency security council meeting at the Government House, said the bandits’ threat was based on security reports.
Radda, who spoke in Hausa, said: “Based on security reports that we are receiving, I am among those that the bandits are thinking of attacking, but that doesn’t muddle me because God is with us, and he will protect us.”
He, however, explained that the threat by the hoodlums would not deter his administration from adopting revolving security strategies to tackle banditry and other security challenges in the state.
The security meeting which had in attendance the heads of security agencies in the state, traditional and religious leaders, top government officials and members of the business community, was ongoing as of press time.
