The attacks by bandits in Katsina and other states in the North have left many people dead and many others injured.
This sparked criticism over the worsening insecurity in the country, especially the North West where the armed men have wreaked havoc in recent times.

The meeting was attended by Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha; Minister of Defence and Retired Major General Bashir Magashi.
