Katsina State Government Recruit 1,200 Vigilante Scouts To Join The Fight Against Boko Haram

In a bid to support the efforts of the Nigerian armed forces, the Katsina state government has registered 1,200 people into its door-to-door vigilance group to join the fight against the deadly Boko Haram terrorists who have continually attacked the North-East part of Nigeria for close to a decade.
Coordinator of the Vigilance Group, Alhaji Abba Mai’nayara said the vigilance group has opened remote offices in the 34 Local Government Areas in the state. He said: “The idea behind opening the offices is to provide adequate security for lives and property of citizens of Katsina state. The group is currently working hand-in-hand with the police, NDLEA, State Security Service, immigration, the army and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps. Whenever our men arrest criminals, we always hand over the criminals to the police or NDLEA for prosecution.”
