Residents of Jibia local government area in Katsina state have applauded efforts of the Nigeria Police in combating activities of Bandits and Kidnappers in the area.
This was stated by the Chairman of Jibia Peoples Forum Alhaji Gidde Dahiru and the Secretary Alhaji Bishir Lawal Jibia during a Press conference in Jibia town.
They said unlike other Security agencies, the Police were always prompt in responding to distressed calls whenever and wherever there was information about Bandits attacks.
But they called on the Katsina state Government to engage with the Zamfara state Government to prevent Bandits and Kidnappers from crossing over to areas in Katsina state to perpetrate their heinous acts.
They also lamented that the Bandits were taking advantage of the recent Amnesty agreements between them and the Zamfara state Government in making some Communities in Zamfara state as hideouts after carrying out attacks within Katsina state.
The Jibia People Forum added that Stolen items from Communities in Katsina state could be seen in some local Markets in Zamfara state especially in the Border Communities.
Some Communities in Jibia local government area have been facing attacks by Armed Bandits inform of Rustling and Kidnapping as well as lost of lives and property.
They cited Tsayau, Shimfida, Tsugunni, Mallamawa, Karauki and Zandam as some of the Communities that were recently being attacked within the last ten days by Bandits.
