Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari, has blamed the spate of insecurity bedevilling the state on volunteers vigilante members  (Yan’sakai) and informants who support the bandits and kidnappers terrorizing communities in the state.



He lamented that volunteers and informants had made it very cumbersome for security agencies to tackle the wave of banditry and kidnapping confronting communities in the state.

Masari was spoking on Saturday while condoling with the victims of bandit attacks and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Faskari and Dandume Local Government Areas of the state.


The governor, who as accompanied at the visit by his Deputy, Alhaji Mannir Yakubu; the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Dr. Mustapha Inuwa; other top government officials and security chiefs, visited Kadisau village, IDPs camps in Faskari Model Primary School and Dandume Primary School respectively.


As it stand there are 4,688 IDPs, mostly women and children currently camping in Faskari and Dandume Primary Schools.


“We don’t accept or approve Yan’sakai because in most cases, they are the ones that trigger mass killings. Yan’sakai will travel 20 or 30kms from their place to another place and kill a Fulani or anybody they suspect to be bandit” Masari added.


“When the Fulani people and bandits in the forest come out, they attack a nearest community that was not involved in the killing of the person alleged to have been killed by them. It has happened in Kadisau and many other places that we saw massive killings. We don’t approve the activities of Yan’sakai but the vigilantes working with the police is what we are working to make sure that they are properly trained to assist the police before the coming of community policing” Governor Masari added.
