He added that because of the massive and impressive efforts of the military in the northeast, the bandits are now relocating to the northwestern region.

Meanwhile, reported that the governor of Katsina, Bello Masari, had revealed those who aide banditry that has been ravaging the state in recent times.

During his discussion with the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, on Wednesday, August 19, Masari said that these criminals get information from persons in the state.

The governor said that this is why security agencies have found it very difficult to defeat the bandits who carry out their havoc in the state.

Added to this, the Katsina state government said that normalcy was returning to the state with farmers and others going about their usual duties.

The government attributed the feat to the efforts of the Nigerian Army and other security forces operating in Katsina.

The special adviser to the Katsina governor on security matters, Ibrahim Katsina, in a statement released on Friday, August 7, said the activities of bandits have been degraded to the barest minimum by the army.
