KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Masari had said that most bandits are from Fulani ethnic tribe who share the same religion, language like himself, stressing that they have been living “with us for hundreds of years”.
However, while speaking with Journalists on Tuesday, the National Secretary of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Saleh Alhassan, asked Nigerians to ignore the governor, adding that nothing good can come out of Masari because he was a drunkard.
“Did you take that drunkard serious? My governor, do you take him serious? Can’t you see that he is already tired? Records should come from security operatives, not a confused human being.
“He knows them now, is he not a Fulani man? All of them talking, they are stealing security votes, they should find solutions, create ranches for these herders and accommodate them.
“Which people do you find along the Sahel Sahara desert? They are many tribes, is it by physique that you now identify a Fulani man? The bandits are criminals, why should you attach tribe to it, that’s why we are not happy. You don’t need to attach a tribe because it will affect innocent person.
“Forget that man, that man is the worst Governor Katsina has had; we are just praying for his time to lapse,” Alhassan said.
KanyiDaily recalls that a popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi had declared that bandits are going nowhere until the Nigerian government grants them amnesty as it gave to Niger Delta militants.
