Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari has again called on Nigerians to take up arms and learn self defense like Americans

The Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari has again called on Nigerians to take up arms and learn to defend themselves from bandits and terrorists like Americans and Chinese because the Nigerian Army and the police cannot protect them against armed bandits. 

Masari is the governor of President Muhammadu Buhari’s home state.

Governor Masari made the call on Monday while speaking at the 2022 special prayer session in commemoration of ‘Yaumush Shukur’ (thanksgiving) day for Katsina, Peoples Gazette reports. 

He lamented that “The security challenges we are facing in terms of killings and kidnappings are not only limited to Katsina or Nigeria, but they happen everywhere, even in America and China. But their citizens don’t fold their arms and wait for the government. 

“Don’t lock yourselves inside and say it is the responsibility of the government or police to defend you: how many people will the police defend? But if you defend yourself, it will reduce the work of policemen and soldiers.” 

Governor Masari earlier charged residents of the state to use anything they had including their teeth to defend themselves against armed bandits. 

Governor Masari’s call comes a few weeks after Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara and Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo encouraged their people to get arms and defend themselves against bandits and terrorists.
