Insecurity: Masari’s Aide Calls For Collective Effort Against Challenges

Special Adviser on Security to the Governor of Katsina State Ibrahim Katsina has advocated for collective efforts to end insecurity in the state.

He made the call during a town hall meeting organised by a Non-Governmental Organisation, NGO, “Murna Foundation” in collaboration with “Community Initiative to Promote Peace, CIPP, Mercy Corps  in Katsina.

Katsina also noted that the spate of kidnapping, cattle rustling, robbery, rape and other security challenges bedeviling the state would soon come to an end when all hands were on deck. According to him, the efforts to attain peace in the state must not be left in the hands of the armed forces, the police and other security agencies alone.

Earlier, the Executive Director, Murna Foundation Aisha Ahmed said explained that the aim of organising the meeting was to hear people’s views on how the insecurity situation in the state can be tackled.

Also, Deputy Chief of Party, CIPP, Mercy Corps, Sani Suleiman said the organisation, funded by USAID helps in peace building to prevent violent conflicts in most at-risk-communities in the states of the North-west, North-east and central regions. He added that the organisation had partnerships in 40 countries around the world in finding solutions to security problems.
