Nigerians have reacted to news of at least 200 bandits attacking the Batsari Local Government Area of Katsina State last week.
According to reports, the bandits carried out attacks on two villages in the area at about 11.30 pm and rustled some cows, killing one person in the process.
The State Governor, Aminu Masari had that said COVID-19 was not an issue for the people of the state but banditry as 50 residents of the state had been killed by bandits in the last two weeks.
Also, a member of the State House of Assembly, Hon. Jabiru Yauyau representing Batsari Constituency, had said the peace accord between the bandits and the state government had collapsed, hence the renewed attacks.

Why are bandits killing people in katsina ? Who are the people sponsoring and buying guns for this people ?
Everyday one issue or the other, can this country just divide already ?
It seems Nigeria is too big for one mallam or individual to handle .#Pray4katsina

The President is from Katsina.
The President is the Chief Security Officer of Nigeria.
The President is living the Baby boy life in Aso Rock or Cuba
But I should #Pray4Katsina?
I'd rather pray for more flight for the wings of the flies hovering over a dustbin. Mtscheew 🙄

Arewa Twitter must be proud.
Y’all rained profound abuses on GEJ during the Chibok Girls abduction.
Today, you are calling on Allah & #pray4katsina?
Did you vote for Allah or Buhari & Aminu Bello Masari? Where’s that energy you used against GEJ?
Where did all the abuses go??🤡 pic.twitter.com/r4sufvfdDn
