Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State says the new measures put in place to fight insecurity in the state are working and that the state is winning the war against banditry.

The governor stated this on Tuesday in Katsina at a consultative briefing held with the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on the security situation in the state.

NAN reports that the briefing was attended by heads of security agencies in the state, traditional rulers, political and religious leaders, civil society groups and other stakeholders.

The governor said the suspension of mobile telecommunication networks in 13 local government areas of the state was yielding fruits because informants of bandits and kidnappers had been cut off.

He said the demands for ransom which were being made through telephone calls had been made impossible.

The governor said the ban on the sale of petroleum products at filling stations around the land borders across the state had made it impossible for the bandits to move freely.

Recall that the governor had directed that only two designated filling stations be allowed to sell fuel of up to N5000 to motorists in 14 Local Government Areas of the state.

Masari, who had reinforced the total ban on the sale of petrol in Jerry cans at filling stations said the state will also implement the ban on the sale of fairly used motorcycles in some markets.

"This is one source they use in buying motorcycles for their banditry activities," he said.

The governor decried the non-compliance to the ban on the use of "junction motor parks" in the state and directed district heads to join hands with Police in enforcing the directive.

While justifying his position that bandits had many known collaborators, Masari said bakers at many adjourning local government areas to the forest were taking bread to bandits at night.

The governor said some of them do production in the night and make supplies to the bandits.
