Buratai said he is in the state to regulate the practice of new militias launched to cleanse the state from the evils of militants.
The commander of the Nigerian Army, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, on Monday, June 29, announced his return to Katsina State after a string of armed attacks in the state.
Buratai arrives in the state to plan the events of the new militia launch, which is planned to pull out militants from the northwest.
"I have arrived two days ago and will take some time to prepare our troops' operations and to address some of the challenges they face," Buratai informed Governor Aminu Masari after his visit.
He added: "We know how the security of the northwest has deteriorated and is currently under surveillance.
"President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the issuance of appropriate measures or measures from security agencies.
"In an effort to ensure that we comply with the president's directive to provide adequate security, the Nigerian Army has integrated its operations with other security agencies in the northwest."
In response to Governor Aminu Masari's reaction, he lamented the fact that the militant group was defending their borders in all parts of the state. As a result, some parts of the state failed to lead.
According to the governor, the state is facing a wave of militant activity that has forced the public to flee.
In his words: "What these people know is strong and until we are strong enough, then we can overcome its problems.
"I am therefore calling on security agencies to realize that the gunmen do not understand any language other than fire."
