“On 12 June, that was designated as a Democracy Day. Ironically, it turned out to be a nightmare for the communities of Tashar Yaro, Koza, Kudewa villages, Geza, Sauyawa, Tamawa, and Maileda within Kurfi and Dutsinma Local Government Areas of Katsina State were attacked by bandits and scores were displaced.

“These banditry activities had led to the regular imposition of taxes on farmers before allowing them to access their farmlands.

“This sad situation has put the peolle at risk of losing their livestock to rustlers and having their shops burgled by the daredevil kidnappers in search of foodstuff.

“The incessant attacks by the bandits had led to low farming productivity, thus aggravating the food insecurity in the affected communities.

“Another painful reality is that, youth in the affected areas could end up with little or no income, thus worsening youth restiveness.

“I urged the federal government to initiate a coordinated Joint Security Operation by providing aerial surveillance and other combat,” he said.
