According to him, ” security is everybody’s affair, irrespective of political difference. What the public should know is that in Katsina; you don’t have 3000 police. Therefore, we are calling on whoever wants to protect himself and his family to acquire arms.

He said ” the religion of Islam has allowed a person to protect himself and his property and family. If you die in the course of protecting yourself, you die a martyr. The annoying fact is that bandits have access to guns and good people don’t have access to these guns with which they can use to protect themselves and their families”.
