Katsina Governor Aminu Masari has directed the Army to finish off bandits killing innocent citizens, adding that none should be left alive in the forests of the major local governments in the state.

Masari made the call during a sympathy and condolence visit to Internally Displaced Persons- IDPs in Faskari, Kadisau, and Dandume local government areas of the state.

He said: ”The bandits needed to be completely eliminated for peace to return to the land”

”The only language that the bandits understands was firing of AK 47 and therefore they will be treated with the language that they understands.”

He assured about 4,000 IDPs located at Faskari primary school and about 800 IDPs in Dandume that the state government would continue to provide proper attention and care to them through provision of adequate food and medicaments throughout their stay in the camps.
