Two days ago, it was reported that Yar Ladi Turaki, a 67-year-old mother was abducted alongside her son, Umar Aliyu, by bandits who invaded their community in Ingawa Local Government Area of the same state.

In July, the Coalition of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Katsina State, expressed concerns over the surging spate of terrorists’ attacks on communities across the state.

The coalition, in a statement by its Chairman AbdulRahman Abdullahi titled: ‘Worsening Security Situation in Katsina State: A Call for Prayers and Sober Reflection’, accused the state government of failing to secure the lives and property of its citizens.

The statement read: “Most disheartening is the government’s inability to take decisive actions and bring these incessant senseless killings of innocent and law abiding citizens to an end.

“Banditry activities are on the rise everyday and the bandits are becoming bolder and more dangerous with every attack they carry out.

“This is because they are becoming more equipped with deadly weaponry with the ransoms paid to them, making them stronger and more daring to advance their attacks to areas, hitherto, inaccessible to them.

“Today nowhere is secured and nobody is safe in Katsina State. The State Headquarters, the seat of power, is not a safe haven either!”.
