Newly sworn in Katsina State governor, Dikko Radda, has issued a warning to bandits and terrorists operating in the state to abandon their cause of action and turn a new leaf or be ready to face the consequences of their actions.
Radda who issued the warning on Monday after his inauguration in Katsina, said his administration will not treat banditry with kid gloves as he would go all out to tackle them and rid the state of crimes and criminality.
“To the bandits, I say abandon your cause and reintegrate into society or face the full wrath of the law,” the Governor said in his inaugural address.
“I urge our youths to shun drug abuse, time-wasting, and criminality. We will work with relevant law enforcement agencies to promote social order and overall security in the state,” he added.
Radda also vowed to deploy all available resources to end banditry and criminality across the state while also engaging communities in doing that.
He also pledged to work with relevant law enforcement agencies to provide social order and overall security for the state, assuring that administrative reforms will be extended to local government areas to ensure that they deliver for communities.
