The Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari has said banditry and other violent related activities has no place in the culture of the Katsina indigenes.
He said this while commissioning an Islamic Centre built by a Kuwait based Charity group, Revival of Islamic Heritage on Saturday in Kafur Local Government, Katsina.
He pondered on why a group of people who shared common heritage and culture suddenly turned against each other in the state, citing good education as a way to bring out a better society.
He said, “Security in this part of the country, has no tribal, or religious or political inclination but pitches brother against a brother, dogs eating dogs.
“But these people were living peacefully before, attending the same common market, mosque, ceremonies both Islam and traditional without any conflict. How come they turned overnight and start killing themselves.
‘’We have to examine ourselves, where have we gone wrong and I do believe something like this with a good education will help in bringing out a better society.’’
However, the representative of the charity group, Sheikh Safaki Rullah Jumat, thanked the Governor for his support and donation of land for the building of the centre.
