The Katsina State governor, Rt. Hon. Aminu Masari, has said government would not allow the insecurity in the Northwest and Northcentral to escalate to the status of Boko Haram terrorism in the Northeast.
The governor stated this while speaking to State House Correspondents, after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House on Wednesday.
The governor also revealed that serious efforts were already on to ensure that banditry, kidnapping and all sorts of other criminal activities currently worrying the Northwest and the North central are brought to an end.
He said further that though some communities in nine council areas of Katsina State had been affected negatively by the activities of bandits and other criminals, agricultural yields would still come out well.
