Insecurity: Buy Guns And Defend Yourselves – Masari Tells Kastina Residents

Following cases of insecurity especially in the Northern part of Nigeria, Kastina State Governor, Aminu Masari has called on the people in the state to buy guns and defend themselves against bandits, adding that the security officials alone cannot fight insecurity.

The Governor reportedly made this submission while speaking in  Katsina on Wednesday.

According to him, “It’s Islamically allowed for one to defend himself against attack. One must rise to defend himself, his family and assets. If you die while trying to defend yourself, you’ll be considered a martyr. It’s surprising how a bandit would own a gun while a good man trying to defend himself and his family doesn’t have one,” the governor said.”

He maintained that, “We’ll support those who come with the initiative to procure arms because residents need to also complement the efforts of security agencies.”

He noted that, “These people (security agents) don’t have the number to protect the people. When President Buhari came, he even tried by increasing the number of our security agents but it’s inadequate. Count it yourself, how many policemen do we have in this country? How many soldiers do we have?”

He added that, “Even if we say every policeman should go back to his home state, it’ll still not be enough. So, if we fold arms and decide to do nothing, we’ll be the ones to suffer most.”

He also remarked that, the police would register all guns bought by the residents to ensure they are put to the right use.
