Katsina PDP youths acquire catapults to fight gun-wielding bandits
The Members of the Katsina State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Social Media Organization have begun to sharpen their local catapult wielding skills for the self-defence of the youth against armed bandits.
The exercise is which is tagged “Operation Catapult Shoot” is in response to Governor Aminu Ballo Masari’s directive that people of the State should defend themselves against bandits’ attacks.
It should be recalled that the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari, in the inauguration of Katsina Joint Security Operations and Communication Control Centre, stated that it was ridiculous that people in the state were not defending themselves against bandits’ attack.
He said, “Why should I sit in my village and be only making telephone calls without doing anything?
“Every bandit, every criminal has an address, has a location, and they are human beings like us. The only difference is that they have taken arms against us; does it mean we have nothing to take against them?”
This led the State Chairman of the Katsina State People’s Democratic Party Social Media Organization, Comrade Nuraddeen Adam Kankara Tina, to lead other members of the social media group to launch the catapult training exercise in Katsina metropolis, in response to the State Governor’s call that residents defend themselves.
He said: “We embark on the exercise in compliance with the recent directive issued by the Katsina State government and we are determined to expand the exercise across local government areas of the state”.
