RAY OF HOPE: AFTER YEARS OF INSECURITY, FARMERS IN KATSINA SAFELY HARVESTS THEIR CROPS
Local Farmers in Faskari, Dandume, Safana LGA’s of Katsina State have begun harvesting their farm produce such as millet, soya beans & rice after years of insecurity. The Locals reportedly praised the Nigerian Army troops of Operation Sahel Sanity for providing regular farm security patrols that enabled a safe harvest season.
Katsina State Government says normalcy is gradually returning to the state with farmers and others going about their usual duties all thanks to the Nigerian Army and other security forces.
According to the locals, the ongoing military operation in the NorthWest region code-named ‘Operation Sahel Sanity’ is achieving the desired result of dislodging the bandits from their hideouts thereby denying the criminal elements the freedom of action and also giving hope to the people to go back to their normal lives.
The increase in civil-military relationships continues to yield confidence and trust within local communities.
