Recall that Katsina Governor, Aminu Bello Masari, during the inauguration of Katsina Joint Security Operations and Communication Control Centre, said it was ridiculous that people in the state are not defending themselves against bandits’ attack.

He said, “Why should I sit in my village and be only making telephone calls without doing anything?

“Every bandit, every criminal has an address, has a location, and they are human beings like us. The only difference is that they have taken arms against us; does it mean we have nothing to take against them?”

Comrade Nuraddeen Adam Kankara Tina, the Chairman of the Social Media Organization, led other members of the social media group to launch the catapult training exercise in Katsina metropolis, in response to the State Governor’s call that residents defend themselves.
