Members of Katsina State Peoples Democratic Party [PDP], Social Media Organization, have lunched operation fight bandits with catapult exercise.
The youths are already carrying out trainings on how to effectively use locally made catapults for self defense against armed bandits.
Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari, during the inauguration of Katsina Joint Security Operations and Communication Control Centre, had called on the people in the state to defend 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?”
In response to the call, the youths lunched, “Operation Catapult Shoot”.
State Chairman of the Organization, Comrade Nuraddeen Adam Kankara Tina, led other members of the social media group to launch the exercise in Katsina metropolis.
“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”, he assured.
