Governor Dikko Radda of Katsina State says his administration has reduced banditry to about 70 percent in the last one year.

Radda, who was on a working visit to Yola, Adamawa State, sp0ke in an interview with newsmen on Saturday.

He said, ”It is high time to have state Police included in the fight against insecurity in the country. We have reduced the rate of banditry to about 60 to 70 per cent. What we are witnessing now is the crazy approach by the bandits going to hard-to-reach villages close to forests, burning houses and killing people.

“We have developed strategies to fight it.” he said.
